Pinned Tabs

Hello.

Cycling through unpinned tabs is easy, Ctrl+Tab does the job.... But what about pinned tabs?

People are more likely to have more pinned tabs open and saved to their browser than unpinned tabs, like myself, as surely, that is the point of pinned tabs.

So I cannot for the life of me understand why I can't find a keyboard shortcut to cycle through these!! Is it really possible for developers to overlook this simple but extremely useful and effective shortcut?!

Can anyone help?

Mike.

Ctrl+(Shift)+ Tab should cycle through all tab, from the first pinned tab to the last unpinned tab, but you can't differentiate pinned and unpinned tabs. You may have to disable "Ctrl+Tab cycles through tabs in recently used order" in "Options/Preferences -> General -> Tabs".

You can also use Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDown to cycle through tabs and possibly use "Ctrl+1" to go to the first tab.

This definitely needs to happen. The whole point of a pinned tab is to quickly access them. A keyboard shortcut to get back to it (or cycle through them, if there's more than one) is the obvious complimentary feature to pinned tabs.

Has anyone posted the suggestion on the new "Ideas" site? https://mozilla.crowdicity.com/
