Firefox – How to assign a hotkey to Firefox container


I use Firefox Containers functionality. But I normally open new tabs using ctrl+t. How can I assign a hotkey to open a new tab in a particular container?

Best Answer

  • Option 1:

    Install the Container Hotkeys extension

    After that you can open new container tabs with hotkeys:

    • Windows/Linux: Open New Tab in Container - Ctrl + Alt + T Mac: Open
    • New Tab in Container - Cmd + Option + T

    Option 2:

    Use Easy Container Shortcuts

    It provides nine easy keyboard shortcuts to open new tabs on different containers: Ctrl+Shift+[1-9] / or Alt+Shift+[1-9] on OSx.
