How to restore a just closed tab.
In the 3.xx version I could enter a couple of key strokes to restore a tab that had just been closed. Now I can't even get help on this subject. The "help" brings up some 3 hundred plus items that just dance all around the subject. "Progress is our most important product!". [sorry] Let's try this just a little differently. I close a tab that I had been using. Then a few seconds later, oops I wish I hadn't done that! Now how do I reopen that tab? Thanks!

The term to look for is keyboard shortcuts if working with Microsoft application documentation in that order, usually works with other applications as well. Try that with the Firefox help.
