Alt+?   Moves cursor to Jump to menu

Alt+1   Go to Home page

Alt+3   Pops up your Friend Requests

Alt+5   Display Notifications

Alt+6   Go to General Account Settings

Alt+7   Go to Activity Log

(Previously, Alt+4 launched Facebook's ­Messages, but this keystroke combination appears to have been removed.)
