How do I quickly access my last (accidentally) closed tab in Firefox 29?

I often accidentally close a tab by mistake in Firefox 29. What is now the quickest way to do this? Ideally with less clicks than in Firefox 28. And no, turning on the menu bar to show all the time is not an acceptable answer.

Chosen solution

The menu under the NewMenu button is customisable.

The history option may be moved within that menu or added to one of your toolbars, so there is no reason to leave it buried if it is often needed.

What I do see as a disadvantage is that in the new History bar that is generated from that option the closed windows and closed tabs are potentially widely separated. (I have not checked yet whether that too is customisable - I use a different menu bar )

Try Keyboard shortcut Shift+Ctrl+T (OR Ctrl+PageUp)

That works (undo tab) but shouldn't I be be able to add a button to the new customizable menu for this!? It's not just the last closed tab, but maybe the tab I closed 5 min ago. This is where the closed tabs menu was useful and now completely buried.
