Use an extension to remap Firefox keyboard shortcuts
Authored by: yergnov on Jan 17, '06 07:21:42AM

On the same line- is there an easy way to put the focus on the URL bar? In IE *cringe* it was always easy to just hit a TAB and highlight the URL and begin typing a new address- HOW is this done in Safari/ Firefox?

Autofill in URL field

This is probably for the forums, but can Firefox search through your bookmarks and autofill in the url, like Safari? I can't find an extension for this, and it's a feature I really miss.

This isn't quite what you're asking for, but one thing I use a lot for quick access to bookmarks is the keyword field. You can set a keyword, say "webmail" on your bookmark for http://webmail.employer.com/. Then all you have to do is type the keyword into your address bar and it will take you to the bookmark.


You can also use http://keyword.ernie.org/ to keep a centralized keyword store and set your keyword.url config entry to that URL. But the keyword field in local bookmarks will work in a single browser.
