You needn’t to specify the shortcuts for Firefox. All these key actions will work in Internet Explorer as well. I mean in the Tabbed version of IE which is IE7 or later.

FYI, there’s an even better shortcut for opening in a new tab. Rather than [ctrl]+[click], you can just middle click. Also middle clicking on an open tab closes it.
