Keyboard shortcuts - Perform common Firefox tasks quickly

This is a list of keyboard shortcuts in Mozilla Firefox. If you have enabled Emacs-style text editing shortcuts in GNOME, they will also work in Firefox. When an Emacs text editing shortcut conflicts with the default shortcuts (as occurs with Ctrl+K), the Emacs shortcut will take preference if focus is inside a text box (which would include the location bar and search bar). In such cases you should use the alternate keyboard shortcut if one is listed below.

Note: Keyboard shortcuts can be customized using the Customizable Shortcuts extension.

Windows & Tabs

Some of these shortcuts require the currently selected tab to be "in focus." Currently, the only way to do this is to select an adjacent object and "tab into" the current tab, for instance, by hitting Alt + Dcommand + L to select the address bar, and then Shift + Tab twice.
