Out of user demand, I have decided to re-visit the Firefox navigation bar keyboard combo cheat sheet for some of the other operating systems out there. Here are all the keyboard shortcuts for the standard navigation bar for the various Linux distros out there. Hopefully all the most useful ones have made it onto the list, but if there is one I missed, please feel free to add it to the comments.
Navigation Bar Keyboard Shortcuts
Alt + Home = Go to your Homepage
F5 or Ctrl + R = Reload a Page
Esc = Stop a Page from Loading
Ctrl + P = Bring up the Print Options
Ctrl + Y = Launch the Download Window
Ctrl + H = Open Your History in the Sidebar
Ctrl + B = Open Your Bookmarks in the Sidebar
Ctrl + T = New Tab
Ctrl + N = New Browser Window
Ctrl + X = Cut
Ctrl + C = Copy
Ctrl + V = Paste
As a bonus, here are a few of my other favorite keyboard combos that you might want to memorize.
- Ctrl + F5 or Ctrl + Shift + R = Reload the Page (overriding the cache)
- Ctrl + F = Find (then use F3 to find again)
- Alt + (1-8) = Select a Specific Tab (if you have eight or less open)
