as my company recently updated FF from german to proper english, I miss the ALT+S keystroke to enter the address bar.

Is it possible to set it with about:config?

Try ALT+D or Ctrl/Cmd+L (from this site)

  • @Mark: It does indeed work in IE, however, annoyingly it pops up a dialog to take your input instead of just focusing in the URL bar.

  • @Bryan, just to clarify: Ctrl+D works as expected/advertised. Ctrl+L opens the Open Location dialog box.

there is F6 ... if you want


you can try the keyconfig addon. it is not in mozilla addon, but it helped me a lot. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=72994

  • it actually lets you change the ctrl+l shortcut to alt+s or whatever you'd like. Dec 2, 2009 at 13:20
  • i'll have to try that out when i get some spare time. if it let's me assign a keyboard shortcut to show and hide the Navigation and Bookmark toolbars I'll be a happy kid

#ifWinActive, Mozilla Firefox

in the AutoHotKey scripting language would remap that for you :)
Not sure if there's a native solution, unfortunately!
