If someone does not understand well how the tables shown below are structured, I leave you an image that shows them a little more organized. One of the next changes and improvements to the design of the blog is to give a more beautiful style to the tables .. 😉

    Felling like a Firefox Geek! xD I know them all, I suppose that coming using Firefox from version 2 of something must have served me well. Very useful for those who like me use the keyboard much more.

    Out of curiosity, what is the difference between Firefox and Iceweasel.

      Basically the name, although I think Debian does its little things ... I don't know.

    This information is interesting, however I detect some errors in them ...
    for example in the tools section, page information section shows the shortcut Ctrl + I this same shortcut is shown in the bookmarks section in the bookmarks side panel section and it is exactly what it does
    Another one that I consider to be an error is in the tools section Cleaning the browsing history, searches and downloads, the combination of keys ctrl + Shift + S appears, but it shows the debugger window and does not perform the navigation cleaning
    I have version 30 of firefox, will this version change some shortcuts?
    If you can find and correct these errors, I would appreciate sharing them ... I am especially interested in them
    best regards
