What are the KEYstroke(s) used to CLOSE the active tab in the web browser? I am reluctant to use a mouse where I can use keystrokes, as the mouse is a much slower process. In fact, can I find a list of all key strokes which can be used in Firefox, e.g. ALT+S followed by R (once or more) and ENTER used to restore previous browsing session; or CTRL+F to search for a specific word or term? Thank you.

I went to play something on netflix and it said I needed to restart in 32 bit mode, so I clicked restart in 32 bit mode and all it did was exit firefox and reload everything. At that point im guessing its in 32 bit mode now because I can now play movies on netflix. I wanna know how i can test to see if its in 32 bit or 64 bit ; and also how to go back to 64 bit.

Thank you in advance. I upgraded to firefox 4, and since then I have had a problem. When opening a new tab I have chosen to be directed to google.com. In the past my cursor automatically went to the search bar on that page when I open a new tab. After upgrading the cursor just stays in the address bar, but I would like it to automatically move to the google search bar on the page. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks again.

Scenario: I used Barcode Scanner to scan the barcode for some software (an Android .apk) file. It offered me: - Email to someone - SMS to someone - Open in browser

So I did the third. It then asked me: "Native browser or Firefox?". The native browser hands these off to the Market.

Expected Result: I assumed Firefox would do the same. Result: Firefox displays it as a big block of ugly text.

And there's no "Save As" function so I can save it to disk and open it from there! Where is the Save As function? I don't want to save as a PDF, I just want to save the file as I downloaded it.

(For bonus points, please also tell me how to alter file associations.)

I downloaded music files using Android version, but FireFox does not use same downloads folder. when I access these files in FireFox, no option to move them to the folder where I want them - or do anything else with them except delete. when i try to find them, I get no results using the file name displayed by Firefox. I can't find any way of finding out where FireFox stores files, or to change this default. we're talking about approx 50 MB here, which I had to pay a lot of bandwidth to download.

How to know which port Firefox is connecting to a website with ?

I've been trying to connect to a FTP server using WinSCP, but the server just won't allow it, despite me having the right login informations and all.

I tryed it on Firefox, and I could connect and see the files just fine. The problem is, Firefox doesn't do uploads and file edits.

My guess is that the problem comes from me selecting the wrong port to connect with on WinSCP.

To test my theory, I wanted to check which port Firefox was using to connect to the server. But I searched in every menu option (I think) but didn't find the info I wanted.

Any ideas on how to find it ?

I've found all sorts of people asking this for the desktop version, but what about for mobile? The autofill information gets in the way of the rest of the screen on phones, so is more harmful than useful, and I'd like to disable it, but I can't figure out how. Thanks.

This seems like it should be the easiest thing to do in firefox but I can't figure out how to change the sites that appear in my browser dropdown list. Who/What determines which sites are in this dropdown. It's definitely not the most frequently used. I have sites in there that I've been to only once. Please advise. Thanks
