Firefox Hack - Looking up Ubuntu Bugs using Bug Number

Looking up Ubuntu bugs using the bug number can be made easy in Firefox using the following bookmark hack:

In FireFox, select the Bookmarks menu (Alt-B for English users) and then right click on the menu and select "New Bookmark...". Next, fill in the New Bookmark dialogue box as follows:

Now you can just enter into the Navigation bar "bug X" where X is the number of the bug you want to lookup and FireFox will expand to the full URL and load the page.

Kudos to Leann Ogasawara for showing me this trick.


  1. Alt-b doesn't work on forreign languages like dutch

  2. Doesn't seem to work on older releases of Firefox. (Tested on 3.0.14, Linux)
