I have the default for "Ctrl+Tab cycles through tabs in recently used order" checked in the options window and have been using it for a long time. However, when I restarted firefox recently, it's no longer working. Ctrl+tab just goes through every tab instead of switching back to the recent tab.
I checked my options and it's checked. I tried turning it off, restarting firefox, then turning it back on and restarting but that didn't help. Whether the option is on or off, I get the same behavior of ctrl+tab moving forward through all the tabs. I restarted with add-ons disabled and that didn't help. I have "support:config" open and I can see the value of "browser.ctrlTab.recentlyUsedOrder" toggling between true and false when I check and uncheck the option.
I have to use ESR version (company policy enforced) so I'm on 68.1.0esr (64-bit), which appears to be the latest.
This problem seems to popup occasionally and then eventually goes away (I guess with a firefox update?).
I know I can use ctrl+1 through ctrl+8 to go directly to those tabs, and ctrl+9 to go to the last tab, and I use those keys pretty often, but I have more than 10 tabs open and if I happen to be on tab 20 then switch to tab 10 and want to go back to tab 20, there's no keyboard way to do that. That's why I really like this option. It works the same way as alt+tab when switching tasks on windows.

There are several problems with saving web pages in the Android version:
1. When saving a web page as PDF, most often one of the following occurs (depending on how the page is set up, I suppose):
Either the menu bars and other elements in the top layer are repeated on every page of the PDF, covering the text underneath. The text cannot be recovered even by selecting and copying, so I assume it is not only being covered, but actually discarded.
Or only the basic layer which contains the text is saved; in this case, most often everything else (images etc), apart from the text, is discarded.
(Of course none of these problems occurs when the page has only one layer.)
2. With some pages, only one page of the generated PDF contains text, even if the text in the page is much longer; so most of the contents gets lost. It happened, for example, with the following pages:
Again, this does not occur with all pages; it seems to depend on the specific way how the website is set up.
3. Some pages are saved as a PDF with disproportionally large or disproportionally small font sizes. A notorious example is Wikipedia: Wikipedia pages are regularly saved with a font so large that only a few lines fit into a page. In some cases, additionally the last letters at the right margin are cut off.
4. Some pages generate PDFs of a disproportionally large file size. For example, the following page contains only 18 KB of text (when copied into a text editor) and a few small images, but it produced a PDF of 39 MB (MEGAbytes):
5. In ALL saved PDFs, hyperlinks are discarded.
Sometimes I have to interrupt browsing on a page with interesting links. Due to limited bandwith, I would be glad to be able to save that page locally, and resume browsing by loading it locally. But since links are not preserved, I cannot do this.
Also, the Android version does not allow to save pages as HTML. That would be helpful too, since it would preserve the links (and consume less storage space, in most cases).
