Cool firefox tricks: Part-1

I want to introduce you some of the coolest tricks in my favorite browser – Firefox. There are so many tricks you can do in firefox. But I’ll teach you two tricks at a time.

Trick 1. Open and closing the tabs. (Works both in Windows and Linux)

Middle mouse button or mouse scroll button

Click on an active tab using “Middle mouse button or Mouse scroll button” to close it. And click on the blank space of the tab bar to open a new tab. You can also switch tabs by pressing Ctrl-Tab simultaneously.

Trick 2. Window switcher. (Works only in Linux)

Click on the firefox title bar using Middle mouse button to switch between two windows. This can also be done by pressing Alt-Tab simultaneously.

Enjoy the tricks! 🙂
