Firefox Bookmark Shortcuts

I had asked in Blog Post Updates - Effective Pattern? how to update a previous post. I'm still not sure I have the answer. I wanted to add something to Browser Keyboard Shortcut Basics. Since the title of the previous post is a bit different, I'm going to create a new post that is just about this one thing and then I guess I'll cross link. By the way, if you are not sure what Ctrl+T does, then go visit the previous post.


Firefox allows you to add a "Keyword" to any bookmark. This becomes a string you can type in the address bar in order to launch that bookmark. For any of your common bookmarks, it's worth your time to set keywords so that you can launch it in a new tab without having to click on anything.



Opens the page.

Internet Explorer offers a similar capability with hot keys.

I am not able to see paragraph 2 of this post because a large image of a dialog box appears to be on top of it. I'm running IE 6.0. I do not get a script error. If I click the image (dialog box?) it appears by itself in a new page. Oddness. Thought you might want to check it out. I wish these things had a way I could message you privately so I didn't have to post this in comments. (Sorry)

It looked okay in Firefox, but I've changed it a bit. Can you let me know if it is okay now?
