Here are two quick tips that you might find useful. Selecting text in web pages using the mouse can sometimes be rather tricky. For easier and more precise text selection, press F7 which toggles the so-called Caret Browsing mode. With this mode enabled, you can make a text selection by placing the movable cursor anywhere on the page and then using keyboard keys to make a text selection.

To close a browser tab, you normally have to click on the Close button. Alternatively, you can close any tab by middle-clicking anywhere on it. This is slightly easier than trying to hit the tiny Close button. In fact, you can remove the Close button altogether. To do this, open a new browser window or tab, type about:config and press Enter. Type browser.tabs.closeButtons in the Search field, and set the value of the browser.tabs.closeButtons option to 2.
