Is there a shortcut code that opens your first, second, third, bookmark from your bookmark toolbar? Safari has this where command+option+1 opens bookmark #1

I know I can switch to my first open tab by clicking command+1, but I want to open my first bookmark with a shortcut key. Is this already built into Firefox or do I need to make custom shortcuts for this? If so, can you make a custom shortcut open a specific bookmark in your list of bookmarks in your bookmark toolbar?

Chosen solution

I don't think there is a built-in way to assign a keyboard shortcut to a bookmark. Someone created an add-on for that:

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/bookmark-toolbar-shortcuts/

If you want or need to change the shortcuts from Alt+number to something else, see this article:

Manage extension shortcuts in Firefox

Does that work for you?

Note that you can use the Tab key to set focus to the Bookmarks Toolbar by starting with the location bar and press Tab until you see the first bookmark selected (it will get a focus ring). Once the first bookmark on the Bookmarks Toolbar is selected you can press the first letter to quickly navigate to this bookmark or use cursor Left/Right. So you can possibly rename these bookmarks and make them start with 1,2,3,4.
