Ctrl+Shift+T: Reopen closed tab in Firefox

Suppose you close a browser window tab in Firefox with Ctrl+W.

Whoops! Wait a second, I wanted to read that!

To re-open it, press Ctrl+Shift+T. Phew!

  1. I just discovered your website and I’ve been loading up my Genovation.com 683 programmable keypad full of your shortcut hints. Now the shortcuts are only one key press away!

  2. Well, hmm, you’re right about that. So I just went back to that August 17th one and changed it. Hah! The power!

    Now the August 17th post talks about how Ctrl+J opens up the downloads window.

    Thanks for catching that!

  3. Norton has their face page on my screen,and i want yahoo back on there,,how do i get rid of norton and re-store my yahoo back on,,plus my icons are much bigger than before. I need regular letter sizeson my screen,,can you help please,

    I hate that Ctrl+W hotkey with such a passion that when I accidentally hit it when attempting to press Shift+W that I would be in prison for life if I ever meet the individual who thought the Ctrl+W hotkey was a good idea. I mean, seriously, is it that hard to hit that little X button? And then to present no “Are you sure?” measure? Surely no jury would convict me if I pushed that individual off a 10 story building.

    Anyway, this Ctrl+Shift+T is a lifesaver. It even restores text entered into a text box!
