Assign Keyboard Shortcuts for Favorite Websites in Firefox

Posted by madhavkobal on 12/09/2009

One way of doing this in Firefox is through the use of keyword bookmarking. This can be done by saving a website in the bookmarks and then assigning a keyword to it. For instance, when I want to visit YouTube I just enter “f” in the address bar and hit enter. Firefox will take me directly to


Another way is by using Site Launcher. With this add-on you just enter a shortcut key and your favorite pages will come up in an overlay window. Press the key that corresponds to a website and it will open in a fresh Firefox tab. Add as many sites as you want from the Site Launcher menu or just Ctrl-Shift-S when browsing a page to add it to Site Launcher. In addition, the favicon will be automatically downloaded so you can recognize the website.
