This is a list of keyboard shortcuts in Mozilla Firefox. {for linux}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 {key Ctrl}+{key K}), the Emacs shortcut will take precedence 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.{/for} {note} '''Note:''' You can customize keyboard shortcuts for Firefox using the [https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/saka-key/ Saka key] extension.{for fx55}{for mac} You can also create Mac keyboard shortcuts for Firefox - see [https://support.apple.com/kb/PH25377 Apple's instructions].{/for}{/for} {/note} __TOC__ =Navigation= {| !Command !Shortcut |- |Back |{for win}{key Alt+&#8592;}<br>{key Backspace}{/for}{for mac}{key command+&#8592;}<br>{key command+[}<br>{key Delete}{/for}{for linux}{key Alt+&#8592;}<br>{key Ctrl+[}{/for} |- |Forward |{for win}{key Alt+&#8594;}<br>{key Shift+Backspace}{/for}{for mac}{key command+&#8594;}<br>{key command+]}<br>{key Shift+Delete}{/for}{for linux}{key Alt+&#8594;}<br>{key Ctrl+]}{/for} |- |Home |{for win,linux}{key Alt+Home}{/for}{for mac}{key option+home}{/for} |- |Open File |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+O}{/for}{for mac}{key command+O}{/for} |- |Reload |{key F5}<br>{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+R}{/for}{for mac}{key command+R}{/for} |- |Reload (override cache) |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+F5}<br>{key Ctrl+Shift+R}{/for}{for mac}{key command+shift+R}{/for} |- |Stop |{key Esc}{for mac}<br>{key command+.}{/for} |} =Current Page= {| !Command !Shortcut |- |Go Down a Screen |{for win,linux}{key Page Down}{/for}{for mac}{key fn+&#8595}{/for} |- |Go Up a Screen |{for win,linux}{key Page Up}{/for}{for mac}{key fn+&#8593;}{/for}<br>{key Shift+Space bar} |- |Go to Bottom of Page |{key End}{for mac}<br>{key command+&#8595;}{/for} |- |Go to Top of Page |{key Home}{for mac}<br>{key command+&#8593;}{/for} |- |Move to Next Frame |{key F6} |- |Move to Previous Frame |{key Shift+F6} |- |Print |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+P}{/for}{for mac}{key command+P}{/for} |- |Save Page As |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+S}{/for}{for mac}{key command+S}{/for} |- |[[Font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages|Zoom In]] |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+&#43;}{/for}{for mac}{key command+&#43;}{/for} |- |[[Font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages|Zoom Out]] |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+-}{/for}{for mac}{key command+-}{/for} |- |[[Font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages|Zoom Reset]] |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+0}{/for}{for mac}{key command+0}{/for} |} =Editing= {| !Command !Shortcut |- |Copy |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+C}{/for}{for mac}{key command+C}{/for} |- |Cut |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+X}{/for}{for mac}{key command+X}{/for} |- |Delete |{for win,linux}{key Del}{/for}{for mac}{key delete}{/for} |- |Paste |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+V}{/for}{for mac}{key command+V}{/for} |- |Paste (as plain text) |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+Shift+V}{/for}{for mac}{key command+shift+V}{/for} |- |Redo |{for win}{key Ctrl+Y}{/for}{for mac}{key command+shift+Z}{/for}{for linux}{key Ctrl+Shift+Z}{/for} |- |Select All |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+A}{/for}{for mac}{key command+A}{/for} |- |Undo |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+Z}{/for}{for mac}{key command+Z}{/for} |} =Search= {| !Command !Shortcut ! |- |Find |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+F}{/for}{for mac}{key command+F}{/for} | |- |Find Again |{key F3}<br>{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+G}{/for}{for mac}{key command+G}{/for} | |- |Find Previous |{key Shift+F3}<br>{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+Shift+G}{/for}{for mac}{key command+shift+G}{/for} | |- |Quick Find within link-text only |{key '} | |- |Quick Find |{key /} | |- |Close the Find or Quick Find bar |{key Esc} | - when the Find or Quick Find bar is focused |- |Focus [[Add the Search bar to your Firefox toolbar|Search bar]] |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+K}{/for}{for mac}{key command+K}{/for}<br>{for win}{key Ctrl+E}{/for}{for linux}{key Ctrl+J}{/for}{for mac}{key command+option+F}{/for} | |- |Quickly switch between search engines |{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+&#8593;}<br>{key Ctrl+&#8595;}{/for}{for mac}{key command+&#8593;}<br>{key command+&#8595;}{/for} | - when Search bar is focused |- |View menu to switch, add or manage search engines |{for win,linux}{key Alt+&#8593;}<br>{key Alt+&#8595;}<br>{key F4}{/for}{for mac}{key option+&#8593;}<br>{key option+&#8595;}{/for} | - when Search bar is focused |} =Windows & Tabs= {note}See also [[Use tabs to organize lots of websites in a single window]].{/note} {note}Some of these shortcuts require the currently selected tab to be "in focus."
