I am on a quest. A quest to completely abandon the mouse and do all of my computer tasks solely using Firefox keyboard shortcuts. Using the mouse has always felt kind of awkward for me and it kind of abruptly interrupts the flow of my work when I am on a roll typing away.

Does anyone know any that I have missed? I am always looking to expand my list. Let’s make this page a constantly updating definitive list of keyboard shortcuts. So bookmark the page and check back often!
