You must have already noticed that I am a huge fan of FireFox as a great SEO tool I can’t live without. So today I am sharing a few FireFox shortcuts and tips to optimize your browser.
From official shortcuts (I’ve selected those that speed up some daily SEO tasks):
|Find Links As You Type||‘ (apostrophe)||‘ (apostrophe)||‘ (apostrophe)|
|Open Context Menu||Shift+F10||Ctrl+Space||Shift+F10|
|Open History Window||Ctrl+H||Cmd+Shift+H||Ctrl+H|
|Force Reload (not from cache)||Ctrl+Shift+R||Cmd+Shift+R||Ctrl+Shift+R|
|Select All Text in Location Bar (e.g. to quickly copy it)||Ctrl+L or Alt+D||Cmd+L||Ctrl+L or Alt+D|
|Move to Next/Previous Link or Form Element in a Web Page||Tab/Shift+Tab||Tab/Shift+Tab||Tab/Shift+Tab|
|View Page Information||Ctrl+I||Cmd+I||Ctrl+I|
|View Page Source||Ctrl+U||Cmd+U||Ctrl+U|
Change Shortcuts / Set Your Own:
Key Config is a great FireFox extension that enables you to set your own shortcuts for any task you perform regularly.
You can also have a look at the tool wiki; I for one found the tool quite very easy to use.
Access it via Tools (in FireFox menus), and edit, reset or disable any existing shortcut or add your own key:
One more great thing about the tool is that it will also allow you to change any shortcuts for any addon you installed.
P.S. If you are a fan of using keyboard shortcuts (and per my experience they can considerably increase your productivity), here is also a few ways to add keyboard shortcuts to Google search.
