Quick commands is an add-on inspired by Vivaldi's Quick Commands that provides a similar window to search and open existing and former tabs.


Open the quick-commands window with Alt+Shift+R (customizable via Firefox's "Manage Extension Shortcuts") Search and browse with the Up/Down Arrows. Open the selected tab with Enter. Esc closes the window, and your current shortcut for closing a tab (Ctrl+W/Cmd+W) will work just as well


The following permissions are requested upon installation (most are quite self-explanatory):

  • tabs: For searching and switching between current open tabs
  • history: To be able to search and display links from history
  • bookmarks: To be able to search and display links from your bookmarks
