Navigate Web Pages in Firefox

This document will familiarize you with ways to navigate, access and refresh web pages.

Step Number:

Action: 

To follow a link, click on it. Most links are colored and underlined, but any time you move your cursor over something and it becomes a pointing hand, it is a link.

Step Number: 
2
Action: 

The Location bar at the top of the window shows the URL (web page address) of the site you're viewing.

Tip: To change a URL, no need to highlight the entire previous address. Usually clicking once anywhere in the URL will auto-select it and you can begin typing in another address immediately.

Tip: You don't always need to enter the prefix "http://www." for URLs. Notice the address in the second image. The two links depicted take you to the same place.
