Lesser Known SeaMonkey Key-bindings

There’s a few key-bindings (short cuts) in SeaMonkey of which I wasn’t aware and wanted to list. I accidentally “discovered” some, this lead to some experimentation and finding others.

Shift through suite apps
command-><

Move through tabs (also works with ChatZilla)
alt-command-right/left
also
fn-cntrl-up/down

Click through sidebar (xSidebar changes this functionality)
fn-alt-up/down

Something that was taken out of Firefox and had to be reimplemented with extensions:
Navigate to above directory of displayed web-page
alt-up

Move forward or backward in your navigated stream
command right/left
or
command-alt-]/[

Group your tabs with similar topics by moving their position
command right/left after selecting tab

Advance through page
fn-up/down
Why is this necessary if the space bar/shift advances down and up via a page? Well if Hint-a-Hint, a Firefox keyboard navigation extension, ever gets ported to SeaMonkey you’ll need to allocate another key other than the space bar to advance; Hint-a-Hint uses the space bar to trigger Hint-a-Hint’s functionality. Of course, this assumes that you have a disdain for the scroll bar and mouse.
