Big thanks to Jeff Atwood for bringing this up! Being an ex-Internet Explorer user I have IE shortcuts etched into my brain. Unfortunately, FireFox didn't bring my favorite one with it. The functionality of the F4 key. 

In order to get to the Address bar in IE (without the mouse) you can press F4. I have longed for the FireFox equivalent, but couldn't quite remember it (and was too lazy to dig it up).

Thanks Jeff.

Note to self: Alt+D

Firefox also has the F6 shortcut for this, I believe this is the same for IE, not F4 ;)

You are 1/2 right... F6 does appear to work in IE and FF which is great thanks! However, F4 in IE also brings focus to the address bar (I just double checked) ;p
