Firefox Tips and Tricks

Address bar. Delete items from address bar history. Your browser has the ability to show previous visited URLs automatically. When you type the name of a website in location bar (address bar), the list of visited URLs will appear. If you do not want it to
show up certain visited URLs you can do it by starting to type an address in the address bar and the drop-down menu will come up with the URLs of pages you have visited with those letters in them. Use your down-arrow on keyboard to go down to an address you want to remove and press the Delete key.

Auto-complete. This trick is not commonly known although is pretty cool. Go to the address bar (Ctrl + L) and type the name of the site without the “www” and the “com”. When you finish typing the name of the site, press Ctrl + Enter and it will automatically fill in the “www” and the “com” and the browser will start to take you there. Secondly, if you type “website/pageone” (press CTRL-Enter) this expands to http://www.website.com/pageone, in IE, this expands to http://www.website/pageone.com. For .net addresses press Shift + Enter, and for .org addresses press Ctrl + Shift + Enter.

Add a keyword for a bookmark.
Go to bookmarks much easier and faster through keywords. Right-click any address of the bookmark and click properties, put a short keyword in the keyword field and save it. After that you can type that keyword in the address bar and it will immediately go to that bookmark.

Note: Address Bar of Internet Explorer in Firefox is called Location Bar, Favorites (IE) in Firefox is called Bookmarks, Temporary Internet Files (IE) in FF is called Cache.
