How do I switch back to the old ctrl-tab/ctrl-shift-tab behavior ?

Posted

Hello !

So I have seen this question posted before but the author decided to just switch version, which is not exactly a future proof solution

So Firefox changed the way ctrl-tab works to display the last tab used, and while I don't think this is a bad idea, I'm just very used to quick switching by mashing ctrl-tab/ctrl-shift-tab, and I don't really want to try and remember the exact order I used my many tabs to navigate between them.

Isn't there somewhere where I could toggle this ?

Thanks !

There is a setting in "Options/Preferences -> General -> Tabs" to enable/disable the new recent order feature.

Hi.

I was wondering if there was some way to bind the new recent order tab switching to a custom keybinding, while keeping the classic ctrl+tab/ctrl+shift+tab keybinding?

I feel that both behaviors would complement each other.
