Tired of typing in full web site URLs? Well, Firefox has a few handy shortcuts to make launching a site a little quicker.
To quick launch a ".com" web site, simply type the name of the site into your address bar (e.g., "google") and hit CTRL + ENTER. The "www" and ".com" are added automatically.
To launch a ".org" web site, use CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER.
To launch a ".net" site, use SHIFT + ENTER.
If you want to open any of these URLs in a new tab, just add ALT to the above key combinations.
Unfortunately for IE users (why do you still exist?), only the ".com" keyboard shortcut works in IE.
