Hi there, I was wondering if it would be possible to add an option to change the function of {ctrl+1}, {ctrl+2} etc to make it instead of going to the first and second tab, it goes to the first, then 2/9th, then 3/9th tab etc. I am aware that {ctrl+9} goes to the last tab but being able to navigate through the middle section would be a nice feature to have that could be turned on in the options section. Thanks. :)

Hello,

officials confiscated my fast PC leaving me with a old system with following specs:

Intel Core i3-3220 (2 cores with 3,3 Ghz), Windows 10 latest version x64, 4 GB RAM, relativ new Samsung SSD, NVIDIA GT 1030 with drivers not updated in a while.

I have bad memory but I think I have this PC about 4 months and this Firefox problem since 2 months, could be totally different because I have really bad memory.

I thought it might be a extension or a setting so I started with a new profile, unfortunatelly it didn't help.

I think tab switching very often is over 3 seconds, doesn't matter much if there 5 or 15 tabs open, I use Firefox since 2002, recommended it to many people and never had such a big problem like this before.

When I tried to play a game which I've played easily on Internet Explorer and on Chrome, Firefox asks if I want to go to IE or save the file. When I selected save I didn't know where to save it. Also, why is Firefox not just playing this game?
