    Ok, so when I fill out forms in firefox I go and fill in the first text
    box, then I press tab, next textbox, I fill it out. Then I press tab and
    here comes a combobox, no problem you just type in the first letter of the
    needed info and it comes up.

    Tab and then: The radio buttons & checkboxes. how can i check/uncheck
    these without having to pick up my hands for the mouse?

    there has to be a way.

    And while I'm on the topic: Lets say I'm searching for something in a page,
    so I Ctrl-F and type what I need in. I do Alt-N and I get the next result.
    All's well and good until I want to get rid of the search bar. Instead of
    picking up the mouse, is there a keyboard shortcut that will get rid of the
    bar with out having to click the red X?

    Space bar
    Escape key, also instead of alt-n you can use F3 for repeat searches -
    just easier to slam :)
