This brief tutorial will show you how to open any of your Firefox bookmarks using just a keyword in the Address Bar.
- When you add a site to your Bookmarks in Firefox, you’re always prompted to enter a Name, specify a Folder to put it in, and assign it Tags.
- However, you aren’t prompted to enter a Keyword – which is the magic behind using shortcuts in Firefox. To add a keyword you just have to edit the bookmark using the Firefox Bookmark Manager. Windows and Linux users can open it by typing the keyboard combo: Ctrl + Shift + O. If you’re using macOS, you can bring up the Firefox Bookmark Manager by using the keyboard shortcut Apple Key () + Shift + O.
- Select the bookmark you want to be able to open using just a keyword and then enter it in the Keyword: field. Use a word or sequence of characters that you can easily remember specific to that site.
- Now any time you want to load that site, just enter the keyword in your Address Bar. That site will appear highlighted as the first result so all you have to do is hit enter.
- That’s it! Just repeat the steps with each bookmark in Firefox that you want to be able to open using a keyword.
