How do I cycle between Firefox windows in "most recently used" order (using Windows 7)?

more options

I'm using Windows 7. I know we can cycle through tabs in Firefox, but I prefer opening links in separate windows. Is there a way to cycle between Firefox windows in "most recently used" order? Thanks!

Hi there. I really appreciate you trying to help! Unfortunately, these add-ons address how to cycle through TABS rather than new WINDOWS in Firefox.

Thanks again for the response!

On other platforms there is Alt/Command + ` (~) to cycle though Firefox windows. I don't know if that works on Windows as well.

Well, if you're talking about application windows then it's no longer related to firefox because mainly all of your application windows are managed by your operating system. In Windows, you can use Alt+Tab combination to cycle through application windows. For mac follow this - https://goo.gl/yayFqK

Thanks again to all!

Unfortunately, co-rel, what you described doesn't work on Windows 7. I can open a NEW Firefox Browser window by typing Ctrl+N, but that's the only related shortcut I know of.

Sajjad Bin Samad, when it comes to WINDOWS APPLICATIONS/PROGRAMs, I use ALT+TAB all the time, to move quickly between programs.

I'm just hoping for a shortcut to quickly move through open FIREFOX BROWSER WINDOWS. So far, I can find no add-ons that will allow this.

I know the terminology can get confusing, especially when one (ME) isn't a "master of operating systems and software terminology." :)

Thanks to both of you for trying! Still looking for an answer!
