Assuming that you are currently in the tab which you wish to clone, first press Alt+D to highlight the address bar, and the Alt+Enter to duplicate the tab.

What’s particularly nice is of course the fact you can chain these together by simply holding down the Alt key and then pressing the D key followed by the Enter key.

Useful if you don’t feel like going to the effort of moving your mouse cursor over a tab and selecting the ‘Duplicate’ option from the context menu that pops if should you right-click.

Firefox 4: How to Duplicate a Tab using a Keyboard Shortcut CodeUnit 06 JUN 2011

Here is a quick and easy keyboard shortcut to duplicate or clone the current open tab in Firefox 4.

Simply click on the address bar for focus (you’ll note that the address highlights) and then press Alt+Enter to open that same address in a new tab. Nifty.

Note that you can achieve a similar affect by holding down Ctrl and clicking on the browser Reload button (yes, yes, I know that this isn’t a keyboard shortcut). This is of course because the default action when holding down Ctrl and left-clicking on any URL embedded in a page is to open that URL in a new tab.
