Keyboard shortcut for "move tab in focus to end" on Macbook keyboard w/o 'END' key?

I use keyboard shortcuts for practically everything, & am often left to my own devise as far as "guess&test"-ing Macbook equivalents. The official Mozilla Keyboard shortcut webpage is a huge help as it usually helps me figure out whichever one I'm after, but I'm having problems with the following:

Move Tab in focus Left Ctrl + Shift + Page Up Move Tab in focus Right Ctrl + Shift + Page Down Move Tab in focus to start command + home Move Tab in focus to end command + end MACBOOK keyboards have no 'PAGE UP' 'PAGE DOWN' 'HOME' 'END' keys, but the equivalence of such buttons are supposed to be: 'Page Up' = fn + ARROW UP ... 'Page Down' = fn + ARROW DOWN ... 'home' = fn + ARROW LEFT ... 'end = fn + ARROW RIGHT'

With this in mind, I've found that the first 2 of these commands can be achieved by the following: "Move Tab in focus Left" Ctrl + Shift + fn + ARROW UP "Move Tab in focus Left" Ctrl + Shift + fn + ARROW DOWN

But I'm still completely lost as to which possible combinations can achieve the equivalence of the last two as: Move Tab in focus to start xxxx Ctrl + Shift + fn + ARROW LEFT xxxx DOES NOT WORK Move Tab in focus to end xxxx Ctrl + Shift + fn + ARROW RIGHT xxxx DOES NOT WORK

Any help with this would be GREATLY appreciated, as I've seen this question posed elsewhere, but never with a working solution.

Did you try without the Shift key (i.e. only Ctrl or possibly Command)?

Ctrl + fn + ARROW LEFT  or Command + fn + ARROW LEFT
Ctrl + fn + ARROW RIGHT or Command + fn + ARROW RIGHT

This is what my setup is

  1. Install and open Keyconfig
  2. Add a new key
  3. Enter a suitable name
  4. For the key value, enter the following command: gBrowser.moveTabTo(gBrowser.mCurrentTab,gBrowser.mTabContainer.childNodes.length-1);
  5. Save, then set any hotkey combination you want
