Firefox - not so obvious search

· Read in about 1 min · (115 words) ·

I discovered this - totally by accident.

In Firefox, you can use / (forward slash) to search for text OR links - and if its a link, then you can follow the link just by clicking Enter!  That is way cool - especially when you’re on a laptop and cant/dont have your mouse around. I’ve always find it a pain to do a "link find"  - ' (single quote) and a text find - ctrl-f separately…​Never knew that there was a shortcut that did both and what more - its way natural if you’re used to 'less'!!
