Firefox Tip: Launch Your Bookmarks

Following up on my “Stop Mousing Around” article, I present a mouseless way of loading bookmarks.

The key is to use Launchy. There have already been Gearfire posts outlining how to use Launchy to search your documents and launch your applications.

Launchy also includes a built-in plugin called “Foxy” which indexes your Firefox bookmarks. Just make sure it’s checked (usually it’s by default) like in the image below.

Now you just press the standard Alt+Tab (configurable to anything you want) and start typing in the name of the bookmark. Gearfire is always a good choice.

This can be really useful for anyone who has a ton of bookmarks, but can’t find where they saved them. You no longer need to “organize” your bookmarks, just Launch them.
