Firefox v77 - Need command to "return to the previous tab"

I need to configure a keyboard command -- or else find an Add-on -- that will "return" -- from the current tab, to the previous tab -- that was displayed in the same Firefox window.

Years ago there was an Add-on that provided this function -- but it was never updated to work on later Firefox versions... I have looked recently, and found nothing similar -- but does anyone know if there is an Add-on to provide this function, that will work on Firefox v77 ?

If not, then how can we forward the following suggestion to Mozilla?

Similar to Alt-Tab calling the Windows "switch Window" action -- Ctrl-Alt-Tab would (ideally) switch Tabs in Firefox, to display the previously displayed Tab, in the (same) top window.

Thank you,

It sounds like maybe you are looking for the Ctrl+Tab cycles through tabs in recently used order in the Firefox settings. If you enable that, pressing the Ctrl + Tab keyboard shortcut will change back to the recently used tabs, rather than cycling through based on the tab's physical position in the window.
