    Shortcut help

    So, after years of Internet Explorer, I got the Windows update telling me all about all the other browsers out there. My IE has been crashing a lot lately and even though there are loads of things I love about IE8 I felt it was time for Firefox.

    Well as if losing my dropdown homepage menu wasn't a blow enough, I press Alt + S after finishing a CW post and...some menu at the top of the page opens. To quote Uppercut, WHAT THE ACTUAL ......??? So, um, is there a quick post keyboard shortcut for Firefox? Because I am 100% serious, if there isn't then I'd rather put up with a crash every half hour.

    PLEASE HELP ME.

    I just actually pressed Alt + S after writing that. OMG.

    edit - should point out for those that didn't know that on IE Alt + S is a quick post shortcut on this, and most other, forums

    Submit form shortcut; has been there for ages. Would not be in the least surprised if it was in IE4.

    On Explorer if you press Alt + S it is a shortcut for actually pressing the submit reply button. I like to use the mouse as little as possible.

    Cider
    In fact, the Higher Education fair I was at today was just a 10 minute walk from a cider farm, couldn't slip that passed the teachers though.

    Tab-Tab-Space, wtf?

    ****, who says you don't learn things on CW? Never knew that at all..

    Edit: And FMD it works. Thanks Corrin and Dicko. You're now up there with Kevin McCloud in my top three living Englishmen.
