I'm on a page with a list of links. I hit Ctrl-F to find the text I want. The link I want to goto is now highlighted. However, hitting enter does a find next instead of following the link. Is there a keyboard shortcut to goto the link that is currently highlighted in find? Thanks, Ben


You can press Esc to exit the finder and then press Enter, or simply Ctrl+Enter to go to the link.

    Somehow this does not work for me... When I hit ctrl+enter in find mode, it toggles 'Highlight all' – Hans Jul 11 '12 at 20:00

Press ' (single quote) and the quick find bar pops up in "links only" mode so that only links are searched. Enter your search and hit enter to follow the link. Hit Ctrl-g to jump to the next link containing your search term.

Found on the mozilla support pages here.

This is super late but I hope it can be useful for future reader.

You can also:

  • press / on the page
  • scroll through the result using Ctrl + G
  • press Enter once you find a link

This mode is pretty limited although but I am pretty happy not having to reach Esc then press Enter

Chrome still does it best with using Ctrl + Enter to go to the link directly.
