Keyconfig is a fantastic add-on for Firefox that lets you set custom keyboard shortcuts for every possible action/task in Firefox incl. launching bookmarklets.
In this article I share how I set single key shortcuts like
'z' for going back
'x' for going forward
'a' to switch to left tab
's' to switch to right tab
't' to open a new tab
'c' for closing the current tab
'r' to refresh
'i' to start inspecting webpage elements with Firebug
'u' to copy URL of the current tab
'l' to focus address bar
'd' to bookmark in Delicious
'v' to view source
'p' to open Page Info window
With these and a few other add-ons like Search Keys I fly in Firefox with keyboard, not point and click.
Most of these shortcuts were what Opera used to come with (I guess, it still does - but then do you know anyone that still use Opera?). This is an updated version of the post I wrote in August 2010.
Download and install Keyconfig from here (xpi file).
