    You know what would be REALLY good on Firefox??

    A keyboard shorcut to change between tabs, like the shortcut (Alt-Tab) to change between program windows on the computer. The amount of time i have to take my hand off the keyboard, on the mouse to chagne a tab is hard work (some may call me lazy) but still i think a (alt-tab) like function on Mozilla would be good for switiching tabs since i always use (ctrl-t) to make a new one.

    Just my suggestion

    You mean like the menu in Opera that pops up when you press Ctrl-Tab, and it's like the windows Alt-Tab menu?

    Or like the keyboard buttons 1 and 2 to switch to the left or right tab from the current one when you're not in a text box, again in Opera?

    Are you hinting at something?

    Ctrl-Tab.

    You're welcome

    (and Ctrl-w closes the current tab)

    OMG OMG OMG!!! Thankyou!!!!! I knew they wouldn't be that stupid to leave something like that out .

    Ctrl + Tab = a lifetime of joy.

    Fat chance for Opera MadMan . Nice try though

    Too bad they told the next tab trick before me, but, here's an alternate way: Ctrl+PgDown is next tab and Ctrl+PgUp is previous tab.. They say that ctrl+shift+tab does previous tab, but all it does is open a new window for me (firefox 1.5 on linux).. Here's a good page of shortcuts: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Using_F...oard_shortcuts

    Now, since the original question has been answered, the hijack:

    Anyone remember the name of the extension that "clones" the current window (or tab) automagically when opening a new window or tab?
