I want to know how to quickly change tabs on a mobile phone. TIA!

I don't think there's a built-in feature for changing tabs, other than using the tabs list. Maybe an add-on?

The Quick Gestures extension has pre-defined (but changeable) gestures for previous tab and next tab. I used this for a while, but found myself accidentally doing unexpected things (sloppy fingers?) so I no longer use it.

UPDATE----------------

the add-on is cool! This fix my problem! But there is a problem with the certificate of the add-on "This add-on could not be verified by Firefox"

What is the risk using this? Can this access internal memory of the phone? Or save password whenever I log-in to any sites without my consent? Any advice?

Thanks!

Hmm, usually if you install through the menu to the Add-ons site, everything is verified automatically. Meaning that the Add-ons team has digitally signed it. I don't know why yours isn't showing that, but hopefully an update to the add-on will fix it.
