    Mozilla Firefox Tips & Tricks


    Maybe you already know this but here it is


    1) Drag and drop
    There are many things that you can drag and drop in Firefox.
    * Drag the favicon of any site to your home icon to set it as the home page.
    * Drag a hyperlink (or image) to the new tab icon to open the link in a new tab.

    2) Keyboard shortcut
    Other than the usual shortcut keys such Ctrl + T:open new tab, Ctrl + N: open new window etc, here are some not-so-well-known, but useful, shortcut keys:

    * Ctrl + Enter: Insert www and .com to the address bar. If you enter "about" in the address bar and press Ctrl + Enter, the browser will load the "www.about.com" page
    * Ctrl + +/- : Increase/decrease the font size
    * Spacebar: Page down, same function as pressing "Pg Dn" (This is one great shortcut key that I didn't know till now…think I should just bang my head to the wall)
    * Shift + Spacebar: Page up, same function as pressing "Pg Up"
    * Ctrl + Shift + T: Open Last Closed Tab

    3) Mouse shortcut
    * Ctrl + scroll up/down: Increase/decrease the font size (same as the Ctrl ++/-)
    * Click a hyperlink with the middle button (or scrollwheel) opens the link in a new tab
    * Shift + scroll up/down: Navigate between the next and previous page

    4)Bookmark keyword search
    If you set a keyword for your bookmark, you can easily open the bookmark simply by typing the keyword in the address bar. To set keywords for your bookmark, right click the bookmark and select properties. You should see a 'keyword' field where you can enter your keyword.

    5) about:config
    There are tons of configuration that you can edit to tweak the browser performance. Type about:config in the address bar to show the configuration.

    I will appreciate if you discuss 'about: config' in detail.

    It's true that there's a lot of articles but you have to be careful with later versions of FF.
    Especially with 8.1 they changed a lot and some older roulette tipps and tricks are not valid any more. It's sad that they did not pay attention to that at all as it seems but you can only take pretty new advice.
