CTRL+SHIFT+E gives you Tab Groups in Firefox.

Once you enter the Tab Groups screen in Firefox there is a little magnifying glass that can be clicked to search tabs from other windows.

Is there a keyboard shortcut that allows you to switch search tabs from other windows directly? For instance starting from the main browser screen?

What is the shortcut key for being able to search all of the open tabs directly?

You can just start typing after pressing Ctrl-Shift-E and the search dialog will open up.

Ya know they really need to make that more obvious! – leeand00 Mar 25 '12 at 1:28
It wasn't very obvious. I couldn't see any indication of a shortcut, so I pressed a key and presto, there it was. The hover text should say include something like (start typing to start searching). That would make it a little more obvious. – Wayne Johnston Mar 25 '12 at 21:03
