I will start off by giving you a daily example of opening[not making ] a site:
Open Firefox,clicking on Address bar and typing your favorite site www.techgeektricks.blogspot.com until you type "tech" many links will appear on the drop down menu and you, after scrolling down, find www.techgeektricks.blogspot.com and click on it to open it ,Or you browse through your long list bookmarks and find www.techgeektricks.blogspot.com and open it...
OR I will show you how to open any site by just pressing three buttons on your keyboard .
Press Ctrl+Space+m and Gmail start loading or Press Ctrl+Space+t and TechGeekTricks Starts up,Wouldn't that be interesting.
So go ahead to Donesmart and download The Site launcher add-on.
Lets see what Donesmart Says about Site Launcher Add - on
SiteLauncher is an add-on for Firefox that gives you a super-quick way to to open your favorite websites using only your keyboard. One special hotkey brings up the Launcher (shown above), followed by a unique key to launch a site.
SiteLauncher is especially useful as a super-fast method for opening websites you use often throughout the day, for example, many people would probably want to add Google, Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter to SiteLauncher - what sites to include is entirely up to you.
Compared to the alternatives (standard bookmarks, the address bar, etc) the Launcher is the fastest, and most convenient way to navigate to your frequently needed sites (at least, that's what we think). SiteLauncher also minimizes clutter, because the Launcher only appears when you press the hotkey.
Because each site key is displayed in the Launcher, you don't have to memorize a bunch of key combinations to have shortcuts to loads of sites, only one hotkey.
Default hotkey is customizable, in case you need it for something else.
Add as many sites to SiteLauncher as you want. Just about any character key can be associated with a site, you're not limited to just a-z, 0-9.
Because you press the hotkey first, no matter what key you assign to each site, you can be sure you will not cause conflict with any of Firefox's built-in shortcuts
Highly customizable appearance - change colors, text size, spacing, column size, etc
Optional visual effects - transparency, rounded corners, and gradients
You can have your site shortcuts automatically arranged or manually arranged in the order you want them to appear inside the Launcher
Set Launcher to open sites in current or new tab
Optionally, set Launcher to appear on startup instead of your homepage

It's included for people who would prefer to use their memory instead of the Launcher, you can safely ignore it otherwise. Because this hotkey doesn't provide visual feedback to indicate when it's active, you have to keep it pressed down while pressing the key for the site you want.|
