Set cursor focus in Firefox to search box -> cmd + K
Set cursor focus in most Mac OS X browsers -> cmd + L
Two of my most used and most useful keyboard shortcuts while browsing the web using Firefox on Mac OS X
My good friend Mike showed me the keyboard shortcut to jump to the Firefox search box after he accidentally stumbled upon it. Thanks Mike!
Ever since I have started hating the mouse and loving the keyboard more I always tab through everything in my browser. One thing that I have found annoying that I have to use the mouse to click back up into the address bar to type in a new address. My fingers finally convinced me to do a google search for a keyboard shortcut to jump to the address bar in Safari. Surprise! There is a shortcut and it is **drumroll** …….. cmd + L
And my fingers and the keyboard lived happily ever after. : )
