Hello,

After restarting Firefox (3.6.9) on OSX 10.6.4 I am no longer able to use cmd+{ or cmd+} to jump to the previous or next tabs in the window. Instead it jumps two tabs back or forward.

Also, the menu items in the Window menu no longer list the actions to navigate to the previous or next tabs/windows like it used to, it now only lists Zoom and Minimise.

Edit: Also just noticed that cmd-left and cmd-right can no longer be used to go back and forward on a page.

The most recent addons installed at the time were Favicon Picker 3 and the updated Flash plugin. These were not installed at the same time and I only noticed the issue after restarting Firefox after I updated the Flash plugin.

Chosen Solution

Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes). See [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] and [[Troubleshooting plugins]]

Question owner

No longer moves 2 tabs at a time after removing Smart Tabs and Favicon Picker 3 which were the two most recent additions. However the problem did not occur until at least a couple restarts after the installation of those two add-ons so I'm not certain why the side-effect was delayed.

cmd-right and left to go back and forward a page returned on its own a few hours after I posted this enquiry though. No changes or restarts required.

Window menu still doesn't show items other than Minimise and Zoom, though I'm not sure if that is a feature of the new version or the result of something else overriding it.

Going to mark this as solved, but I'm still dubious about whether those add-ons were actually the cause of the problem given delay in the side-effects and the way a couple of the problems just went away on their own.

Thanks for the advice though cor-el. :)
