Firefox Quick Find

Monday, May 23rd, 2011 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

I don’t know about you, but when I’m doing research on the Internet the last thing I want to do is have to scan en entire page of nonsense when I can just hit a shortcut key and search for a keyword.

Yeah, yeah – we all know the drill: Hit Ctrl-F and type in your query…

But did you know that Firefox offers an even quicker way to search for something on a page? Seriously! Just hit, the / key on your keyboard (located just to the left of the Shift key) and start typing!

You’ll find that word in no time!

    This is a great time saver for me. I scan pages and pages of newspaper articles looking for a particular name. I know I can use the “Find” but your tip is much quicker

    I like the tip.
    I tried it and my computer (HP Pavilion dv7 laptop) has a statement next to the ‘Links Only.;
    I typed a single word and reply was “phrase not found.”

    This is just a remark, but I was interested in the difference and thought I would comment on it.
    Any thoughts?

    Awesome tip! This is a tip I didn’t already know and I will definitely be using a lot! Thank you for all of the wonderful tips you pass along!

    There’s no need to hit the slash [/] key. The Quick Find box opens as soon as the first letter of a search is entered.
