When switching tabs, Firefox allows you two behaviours: Recent Order or Tab Order but you have to choose between them. This is a trick to have THE TWO BEHAVIOURS TOGETHER Catch: AutoHotkey is required.

In Firefox Options/Preferences -> General -> Tabs" mark enable recent order (ticked) Then compile the next script in Autohotkey and keep it running.


  1. if WinActive("ahk_exe firefox.exe")

^Q::Send, ^{TAB} ^Tab::Send, ^{PGDN} +^Tab::Send, ^{PGUP}

  1. if

Now with Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab you move right and left between Tabs and with Ctrl+Q you move to last viewed Tab. I choose Q because is next to Tab but you can change it in the second line of the script. Cheers!

Maybe some moderator can edit it. Thanks!

If you put a blank space at the beginning of each line, or but <pre> before and </pre> after your code, the forum won't mess with it.

Also, there are add-ons for this. I prefer sequential access as my default, so my add-on allows assigning a keyboard shortcut to switch to the last active tab. It also has drop-down lists, if that would be of interest.

Thanks! I did not know that extension... I think what is better that way what depend of a external program.

About forum messing with code, thanks for the tip but I can't edit my posts... maybe for next time.
