Tabs allow you to open and organize multiple websites inside a single window. This keeps your screen from getting cluttered and makes it easy to switch between sites. This article covers the basics of using tabs.
To open a new tab, click on the plus sign + on the right side of the last tab. The cursor will appear in the address bar so you can start typing in your search or URL.
Normally, when you click a link, it opens in the current tab. If you want to open a link in a new tab instead, just right-clickcontrol-click on the link and select Open Link in New Tab from the context menu.
You can visit a tab simply by clicking on it, or press Ctrl+tabcontrol+tab to quickly switch to another tab.
To close a tab, just click on the x on the tab itself.
To move a tab to a different position on the tab strip, just drag it there using your mouse.
If you've opened more tabs than will fit on the tab strip, tab scroll buttons appear at each end. Clicking on them will scroll the tab strip left or right.
You can also click the "List All Tabs" button and select the tab you want from the drop-down menu.
Pinning a tab allows you to keep your favorite sites open and just a click away. Pinned tabs open automatically when you start Firefox. For more information about Pinned Tabs, see Pinned Tabs - keep favorite websites open and just a click away.
Tab Groups (also known as Panorama) are an easy way to visually organize a lot of tabs. You can put your tabs into groups, switch between those groups and quickly search through all of your open tabs. For information about creating and using Tab Groups, see Use Tab Groups to organize a lot of tabs.
