Keyboard Shortcuts

There are basically four types of keyboard shortcuts, and these are: OS specific, Mozilla specific, MultiZilla specific and user defined keyboard shortcuts.

  • Looking for Mozilla specific keyboard shortcuts? In that case you can follow this link.

User defined keyboard shortcuts can be OS specific, or program specific and require you to install either some add-on or OS specific tool.
