About "Select Tab 1 to 8" Shortcut: Alt on Linux, Ctrl on Windows.

Posted

A few days ago I've switched from Windows to Linux (To be spesific Debian based Pardus distro: Pardus 17.5 UVD XFCE (64-bit)). Normally I was using Ctrl + Number (1 to 8) to browse between tabs. Now It doesn't work. According to Firefox Keyboard shortcuts page( http://mzl.la/16NAhwz ) It says Alt + Number. Does this feature different on Windows and Linux? If there's a way to switch back to Ctrl it would be really nice. I'm really used to use this way. Firefox version: 60.7.0esr (64 bit)

Someone created an add-on for this. It doesn't cancel out the Alt+number function, but it adds detection of Ctrl+1 through Ctrl+9. Actually, I haven't tested it myself (Windows user here) so if you try it, please let us know whether it worked for you -- the reviews certainly look good.
