I was stunned at the positive reception my last Firefox tips post received so when I discovered a new tip today, I decided to share it on Make Use Of. It’s obvious you guys like Firefox tips so here’s another one for your arsenal – navigating between pages with your keyboard.
When you want to go back to a previous page or go forward to another page, most of you would probably immediately reach for the mouse and use the arrow keys on your browser.
But there is a way to do it with the keyboard!
Just press the ALT key and then the left arrow key on your keyboard to go back a page. Or press the ALT key and then the right arrow key on your keyboard to go forward a page.
Now you can remove the arrow keys from your Firefox browser to save space and use the keyboard instead which is much easier and faster.
