How do I make ctrl-tab not horrible in firefox?

· Web · 0 · 0

@ajroach42 Are you trying to select all tabs at once?

@claudiom I'm trying to cycle to the next tab in the list.

It defaults to cycling to the most recently opened tab.

@ajroach42 Ah, gotcha. I misinterpreted that as being ctrl and click-on-tab. 🤦‍♂️

@ajroach42 There's a setting in about:preferences. In about:config, it's browser.ctrlTab.recentlyUsedOrder (set to false)

@endomain @zacanger It's SO SLOW.

I'd adapt to that workflow if it wasn't just unbearably slow.



It breaks if you have more than nine tabs open. That's an immediate non-starter for me.

@endomain @ajroach42 Yeah I don't really know why they thought that would be a great idea. I can see it maybe being implemented by an extension, but making it the default seems... not great.

@zacanger @endomain @ajroach42 I always enable that, when did they make it default?

Otherwise it's hard to switch quickly between the two latest tabs. I don't have more than 10 open usually but I still hate hunting.

@qwazix @endomain @ajroach42 I think they enabled it by default sometime last summer, but only for new profiles

In about:preferences, there is a checkbox that governs the behavior you refer to, uncheck it.
