Firefox Keyboard Shortcuts

Are you a Firefox lover? Like to use FF without using the mouse. Most of the power users hate mouse, they want to use keyboard for every thing. I've to admit that I'm not a power user. But knowing few shortcuts can save lot of your time. These are few shortcut that you can use in FF.

To use the keyboard shortcuts hold down CTRL and press one of the following:

OOpen Local File. This is one of the biggest changes from IE where both Ctrl-O and Ctrl-L opened a dialogue box for a URL.
LChanges focus to the Address bar
TabScrolls through the tabs from current window towards the right. Loops back to the first tab when rightmost tab is reached
1..0The numbers 1 to 0 takes the focus to Tab 1 to 10

Wa tab or if there are no tabs, close the window
