Firefox for Mobile – Keyboard Shortcuts

Not every mobile device has a physical keyboard, but many do. Firefox Mobile supports a handful of keyboard shortcuts that might make your life a little easier:

  • Zoom in: Ctrl+Up arrow
  • Zoom out: Ctrl+Down arrow
  • Go to Location Bar: Ctrl+L
  • Back one page: Ctrl+Left arrow or Backspace
  • Forward one page: Ctrl+Right arrow or Shift+Backspace
  • New tab: Ctrl+T
  • Close tab: Ctrl+W
  • Open link in new tab: Ctrl+Tap on link

For a more complete list of keyboard shortcuts, and lots of other useful information, go to the Firefox Mobile support knowledge base.
