In earlier versions of Firefox, I used F6 to go the address bar. However this does not seem to work any longer and seems to switch between the tab bar and the display part. What is the new shortcut?

PS: I use the Tab Mix Plus and Vimperator plugins, if that matters.

These work in most programs that have a location bar:

  • Ctrl+L

  • On Windows, Alt+D

Cmd-L on OS X. – Daniel Beck Apr 22 '11 at 11:54
Ctrl + L also works on windows. – user Apr 22 '11 at 16:13
@soul: It does work on all OSes, yes. I just noted that Alt-D seems to be specific to Windows. – grawity Apr 22 '11 at 17:12

To make F6 work again, disable the "Tabs on Top" feature. Select menu View/Toolsbars/Tabs on Top to turn it off.
