Having defined a bookmark like this: keyword=leo url=http://dict.leo.org/?search=%s Enter in address bar leo evening <Ctrl>+<Return> Expected result: Firefox opens new tab with address "http://dict.leo.org/?search=evening" Actual result: - Firefox does not open a new tab - incorrect url completion to "http://www.leo evening.com" - Messagebox "Url is not valid and cannot be loaded." Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
<ctrl>+<return> is not the correct key combination for opening a new tab from the url bar. You need to use <alt>+<return> for this to work. Using keywords with <alt>+<return> works for me. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.9
You are right -- I still was used to the Mozilla way of life. To conclude: - <Alt>+<Enter>: Open in new tab - <Ctrl>+<Enter>: Extend input with "www." and ".com" - <Enter> (great idea for non-US users): If domain name doesnot exist: take first search result from google
