ok I am loving my Mac but one thing I am not getting used to is:

In firefox, when I want to go to my home page I would usually click: Control-T the Alt-Home to get my home page. In Mac I can do the CMD-T for a new page but what is the mac equilivent for ALT-HOME? I especially would like a HOME/END for the html/css/php files I work on, since they can get long.

I don't believe that there is a hot key to redirect you back to home. I think this because when you click on the History at the top, it includes a hot key for back and forward, but not one for home. Maybe it is possible to set a hot key for that action though.

Home and End keys navigate you in the web page.

There is no keyboard shortcut for your home page in Firefox. But you can add one in system preferences...

Apple Logo > System Preferences
Mouse & Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts
Click the +
Application: Firefox.app
Menu Title: Home (case sensitive!)
Keyboard Shortcut: (option h)

schweb This has to be one of the best threads ever in MF history...
Cherokee This gets my vote for most innovative thread on Mac-Forums... ever.
