    So obviously the DX doesn't have the keyboard to provide the standard shortcut browser keys (menu-b menu-f menu-s etc). HOW can we invoke some of these shortcuts on the Droid X in the browser? I know that pressing the Menu Key brings up some options and the More button, but that's extra clicks.

    Also, I love "Find on Page" (Menu->More->FoP" ) which pops open the text entry and even has horizontal arrows for forward and back next occurence. BUT, it finds the first occurence, you touch the screen to be able to read around the text, AND THEN the find-next pop up dissapears as soon as you touch the screen.

    1. IS THERE A WAY TO use shortcuts within the Droid X browser?
    2. Is there a way to keep the Find NExt box open even when you touch the screen to read the text?
    3. Any advice for some advanced browser usage would be great.

    4. I know about the Arrow Key in the Swipe keyboard (swipe from i to Sym), but how do you bring opwn the keyboard within the browser display?

    thanks.

    to create a shortcut
    - from the browser, select menu, bookmarks, add

    to add a shortcut to your home screen
    - long press on a screen, select shortcuts, then bookmark

    I believe s/he's looking for menu shortcuts within the browser, not bookmark shortcuts on the home page.
