I'm using pentadactyl in my Firefox as a keyboard enthusiast.

Now I'm thinking of using key shortcut to easily access one of my bookmarks, which actually contains a javascript to run (so apparently it is not working with o or t to open a keyworded bookmark)

Is there a way to do this?

You're looking for quickmarks. As the help describes:

A QuickMark is simply a URL assigned to a letter or digit. They can therefore be saved or opened with only three key presses each. QuickMarks are persistent across browser sessions.

Thus :qmark a aol.com defines the shortcut to the letter a. In order to go to the quickmark, you'd type goa.


Have you tried adding a QuickMark? I'd give you a specific syntax, but I am afraid to give you the wrong directions.
