Hi,

I know this is been asked and discussed multiple times over the years. But the current [CTRL+TAB] and [CTRL+PGUP/PGDOWN] are less that optimum for people who use Mac's.

We like to use CMD+[CTRL/SHIFT]+Left/Right. If there would a menu item for the two operations then it's quite easily do do via keyboard settings. But as that has been removed we're stuck with something which doesn't really work on notebook as there aren't any PGUP/PGDOWN keys ....

Please make it programmable or add the "Next Tab..." and "Previous Tab..." back to the Window menu.

Cheers.

You can use Fn + Arrow up and Fn + Arrow Down for page Up and Page Down

There are other keyboard shortcuts to switch tabs on Mac. See Windows & Tabs:

I'm having this issue as well. I want to switch to Firefox but I can't until this is fixed. On every other browser (Chrome, Safari, etc.) I have this functions mapped to F1 and F2. The suggestions above aren't relevant. This is a deal-breaker for me, but I'd love to switch the moment this is fixed.

By far the easiest fix, suggested by the OP, would be to add the "Next Tab..." and "Previous Tab..." back to the Window menu. MacOS has a nice universal keyboard shortcut system, but Firefox needs to add more menu items to make it play nice with Macs.
