I want to do as much as possible with keyboard shortcuts in Firefox. One operation I still can't do with a keyboard shortcut is duplicating a tab while keeping the history.
What I have figured out so far
One can hit
- Ctrl+L to select the address bar and then hit
- Alt+Enter to open the same URL in a new tab.
But that does not retain the original tab's history. Which means I can't hit Back and go one page back in the tab's history.
I also installed the Customizable Shortcuts add-on. The problem with it was, that there was no operation "Duplicate tab" exposed for which I could have assigned a new keyboard shortcut. So dead end there as well.
So the question remains: is there a way to duplicate a tab including it's history with a keyboard shortcut, either with Firefox's built in capabilities or by installing an add-on?
Currently, I have the FireGestures add-on installed and use a mouse gesture to invoke the command "Duplicate tab" which duplicates the current tab retaining the history.
