I was wondering if there was any way to cycle through open Firefox windows on current Window similar to the following answered question for Appe OS users... To clarify active windows:(as in ctrl+N) as opposed to a new tab:(ctrl+T).

There was a previously answered thread about this but it concerned those running MAC OS users running firefox. I was wondering the same thing but for Windows users(currently running windows8).

Here is verbatim what the answer of the previous post was for MAC users... "On Mac you should be able to cycle through open Firefox windows via (Shift) Cmd + ~ (Tilde) or possibly accent (`)

Thank you in advance!

On Windows it is not possible to only cycle through the open windows of one application like you can on Mac. On Windows you can only cycle through windows of all open applications via (Shift) Alt+Tab.

Hey there!

I'm running Windows 8.1 and shift-tab seems to do the job for me.
