KeyBoard Shortcuts

Searching for the mouse everytime u open and close the window and also for each and every option makes the life difficult for techie guys.Most of the Times we feel lazy performing all the operations wid mouse and loty of time is wasted on it.Instead we can use the keyboard shortcuts which are convenient and easy to use.So Here iam listing almost all the firefox keyboard shorcuts that wud make our life easier.

Alt + D / Ctrl + L- Allows you to directly jump into the location bar(address bar).

ALT + Enter-Opens the address of the website u are viewing in the new tab.

CTRL + R -Reloads the page.

CTRL + T-Opens a new tab.

CTRL + Tab-Selects the next tab. Suppose you have opened up about five tabs to research a couple of different issues, you may need to navigate back and forth between the tabs.
