Full List of Firefox Keyboard Shortcuts

In this post, I will make a detailed list of keyboard shortcuts that are available in Mozilla Firefox web browser.

If you are a Google Chrome user, you can check the list of Chrome keyboard shortcuts.

Using the keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys) may help you speed up and simplify many tasks that you do frequently and repeatedly within a software. Since web browsers have become probably the most used software lately, knowing the shortcuts for the browser you are using may save you a lot of time.

Though there are some common keyboard shortcuts among all programs such as copying (Ctrl + C) and pasting (Ctrl + V), every program comes with its own set of shortcuts. The available shortcuts also depend on the operating system you are using as Windows and Mac computers have slightly different keyboard buttons and may use different buttons to do the same task in a program.

Now, let's see the shortcuts that are available in Firefox browser on Windows.
