Paste Multiple Lines into Google Maps

Firefox users can paste addresses in multiple lines into single line search boxes (like those in Google Maps). According to this article at, simply follow these steps:

  • Type "about:config" in the location bar.
  • In the Filter field, type "singleline"
  • Double click the editor.singleLine.pasteNewlines entry and change the value to "2"

A couple of other Firefox tricks I’ve adopted are two keyboard shortcuts:

  • Ctrl-L: Moves the cursor to the Address box ready to replace the current address.
  • Ctrl-K: Moves the cursor to the search box.
