Link: [Firefox] Navigational Instruments

October 26, 2020

Mike Hoye's Navigational Instruments (via) is about a bunch of underknown or underappreciated features in Firefox. I learned some really useful tricks from the article, including this one:

  • Holding down Alt while selecting text allows you to select text within a link without triggering the link

(In fact I used the tip to copy the title of the article from the article, because in the article the title is a link to itself.)

You may already know some of these tricks, as I did, and not care about others (I don't make much use of the URL bar, now called the 'Quantumbar'), but there's likely valuable stuff here for every Firefox user.

In Chrome, holding down Alt while selecting text allows you to select text within a link without triggering the link... but instead downloads the link.
