Is there a keyboard shortcut to open first google search result in a new page?

I would like to go to the first result of a google search easily, as I do in Chorme. In Chrome you can click TAB to hi-light the first result's link, then with a click open it. In Firefox, I can't do this, because if I click on TAB it will require me a lots of clicks to reach the first results.

I am using the apostrophe and the keyboard to search within the links of the page.

My goal is to open the first link without moving my hands from the keyboard.

Hi, you can set Google to always open results in a new page by: Search for anything - to open the results page, then > Options (top right corner) > Search Settings > 'Where results open,' and tick/check 'Open each selected result in a new browser window.'

As for keyboard shortcuts, here is a list - Keyboard shortcuts - Perform common Firefox tasks quickly.

I'm not sure if that's exactly what you want, but hope it will be of some help.

If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you.

That is not possible AFAIK. That first result or any other result doesn't have an accesskey.

A possibility could be to create a keyboard that runs some JavaScript code. You can do that with the keyconfig extension.


javascript:if(typeof linkTbl=='undefined' || linkTbl==null){var linkTbl=new Array(),linkIdx=0,DQS=document.querySelectorAll("h3.r>a"),idx;for(idx=0;DQS[idx];idx++){linkTbl[idx]=DQS[idx]}linkIdx=0;}else if(linkTbl!==null && linkIdx<linkTbl.length){linkTbl[linkIdx++].focus();}else{linkTbl=null;}void(0);

I apologize in advance if this information from the Windows platform is not applicable to Mac:

If you have not disabled Instant Prediction results... After your results load, when you press the down arrow key on the keyboard, a blue triangle should appear to the left of the first result. You can use the up and down arrow keys to move between results, and open a result by pressing the Enter key.

It doesn't seem to work on page 2 of the results for the search for some reason. However, if I press the Tab key once on that page, then the blue triangle appears and I can use the up and down arrow keys. This inconsistency is strange...

Some users have reported that logging into your Google account disables this feature, but I haven't noticed that myself.
