Windows 7: Firefox 3.5 Switching Tabs

Firefox 3.5 Switching Tabs

In previous versions, you could give focus to a single tab (like clicking on it) and then use the arrow keys to toggle between tabs.

I can't do that in 3.5, did they take that out or did they just change the way it's done?

Are you looking for functionality past just control-tab and control-shift-tab?

Wow. Thanks, that is exactly what I'm looking for. I wish they had kept the arrows as an option. But this works just as well.

In alternative you can use CTRL+1, 2, 3, 4 and so on.

Wow, there are a lot of ways to do this. I use Ctrl-PageUp and Ctrl-PageDown

Mine does a fantastic job...when I have it with me. I use a laptop, and try to use the touchpad as seldom as possible.

No method is better than any other, essentially it is personally preference, but I wanted to mention that any Multiple Document Interface application in Windows (MDI) will use Ctrl-Tab\Shift-Ctrl-Tab as a standard (part of the underlying base object) to navigate between documents.

Some other useful standard shortcuts are listed at: Keyboard shortcuts for Windows

Windows 7 introduced a lot more as well.

Can you do Windows+Tab? I think you can do it in IE.
