Re: New Computer


you don't need to open a context menu. and you can also use control i to open the same bookmark menu with only 2 keys.
when you get to the bookmark you want to delete just press the delete key on it. no context menu needed.

Try this:

1. Open Firefox.
2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus B to open Bookmarks.
3. Navigate to the bookmark you wish to delete.
4. Press SHIFT plus F10, and arrow down to Delete.
5. Press ENTER.

That's it. The bookmark is deleted.

Deleting a bookmark from the standard bookmarks menu won't work, no matter how you attempt to delete it. You must open the Show All Bookmarks menu with CONTROL plus SHIFT plus B first, before bookmarks may be deleted, either with the Delete key, SHIFT plus F10, or Application key.

Let me see if I can explain it better. Shift f10 won’t work if you are trying to right-click on a bookmark in the menu so you can get the context menu to delete it. That’s the only place I’ve ever found where it doesn’t work, but there it is.

Hi, Chris. I just checked, and in Firefox version 63, SHIFT plus F10 has the
same menus as Applications key.

Just guessing here, but there may not be an application key at all. I
just bought a laptop that doesn't have one and it's going back to the

As for the function keys, they may be set to perform hardware
functions rather than the application specific functions you would
expect. I'm not sure how you would change that on an HP laptop. But
you can get the app specific function by holding down the FN key while
pressing the function keys.

I hope this helps.
