CTRL+Q quits the entire browser, not the tab.

I accidentally hit some combination of keys which displayed a menu of Firefox shortcuts superimposed over the page I was on. Does anyone know the key combo I hit that did this?

Oh! i forgot to mention. Not Everyone updates to the newest version of their browser. So keep 3 past versions handy :)

Not sure if you allow links in comments, but here is what I mean: http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2012/10/peak-chrome-googles-browser-falls-as-firefox-internet-explorer-stay-flat/

I checked it and it toggles the 'add-on' bar. I am adding it to the list. Thanks!

There's also CTRL+/ which shows somewhat bar at the bottom of the page but i just don't know what is it for right now. Check it out for yourself. Maybe it's for addons icons?

@Hamster: did make a correction to [ctrl]+[k], yes, [ctrl]+[e] does not work anymore. [f6] still works somewhat: it switches to the tab bar, but not to the address-bar. You can still press [f6] and then [tab] to get to addressbar.

Comment #3 by Hamster May 31, 2011 at 04:37 pm  Reply

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooo.......

They took away F6! It did the same thing as Alt+D and Ctrl+L: moved the cursor to the address bar. Also, Ctrl+E does not work for me. It should move cursor to the search box. Only Ctrl+K does now.

Firefox 4 duplicated the main menu. What's the keyboard shortcut for the new menu (the orange button)?
