User Help for Mozilla Firefox
Firefox 4 introduced the Paste and Go feature but I can't find a keyboard shortcut for it. If there isn't one, this feature is pretty much useless, so I hope that's just me being unable to find it...
Still, if there really is no shortcut, is it possible to create one with the (recently-updated-to-work-with-firefox-4) keyconfig extension?
right click the URL box
So you say that I should press ALT+D, than that context menu key, then use arrows to select paste and go? No, thanks. That's something everyone know.
That is interesting that there's no mnemonic for Paste & Go

I use Ctrl+L, Ctrl+V, Enter for the address bar.
For the search bar, that would be Ctrl+K, Ctrl+V, Enter.
I use Ctrl+T, Ctrl+V, Enter but I hoped for something like Opera's Ctrl+B. I think that the guys making decisions chose the wrong direction...
Thanks a lot for a competent answer.
buggeer, I feel your pain. I too have been struggling to find a keyboard shortcut for this. E.g., like Opera's Ctrl+B. The now discontinued Paste and Go 3 extension for earlier Firefox versions had Ctrl+Shift+V. Having Paste and Go only in the context menu, as in Firefox 4 and Chrome, is virtually valueless for me.
Exactly, someone on mozilla should start thinking what he's doing, as the paste and go 3 extension was removed from mozilla add-ons and now I can't even download it for firefox 3.x.
There is one thing we can do. Link to this thread and make it show one the first place in google so maybe those guys will do something about a keyboard shortcut.
Paste and Go 2
A modified version of Paste and Go 2 is available. It appears it's only been edited to add Seamonkey compatibility, not to do anything malicious, though I haven't bothered examining it, mind you. So you've got the fact that it's hosted on mozdev.org and the Add-ons Mirror to help you decide if it's trustworthy enough to install.
To install it, you'll have to go through the usual rigmarole of Editing an add-on to change its compatibility or use Add-on Compatibility Reporter. A quick test showed the keyboard shortcut works fine.
It's got all the features of the venerable old Paste and Go 2 0.8 that I used in Firefox 3.6, namely configurable paste and go and paste and search shortcuts, toolbar button, and being able to choose whether the selection should replace the whole field (Chrome-style) or just the selected portion (Opera-style).
The original Paste and Go 2 has long lost its Firefox Add-ons page and its homepage only has a very old version available.
The also-abandoned Paste and Go 3 was just Paste and Go 2 with its maxversion bumped up, which is why I never bothered with it. If you prefer that rip-off, it's available at the Add-ons Mirror.
If you want to complain to Mozilla, open the Help menu and choose Submit Feedback.
Gingerbread Man, I've just tried it and it works. I chose the Ad-on Compatibility Reporter route. You're a star! I'm almost back to Firefox 3.6.x functionality now. May now try seeing whether a few remaining extensions work.
Any security issues we should know about?
