A little known feature about Firefox 3.0

 

If you are a ardent web surfer and you use firefox mostly for web browsing,then this article could be interesting for you.

It is very common for a web surfer to open more than 9 sites in a firefox in the same window, it happens to me as when I browse through large number of blogs and web sites opened in different uncountable tabs.

Switching across these tabs becomes more and more difficult when as number increases, so there a key board shortcut associated with each tab starting from left as ctrl+1 for first tab, ctrl+2 for the second tab and so on..

But these shortcuts are limited up to ctrl+9 to access the opened tab the 9th position but if you want to access the last opened tab with a keyboard shortcut you can’t do this in any version lesser then Firefox 3.0

But in Firefox 3.0,  if you press ctrl+9 you can access 9th tab if their are less or equal to 9 tabs opened else you will get to the last tab opened in firefox 3.0 irrespective of how many tabs are opened.

    WOW, I knew about Ctrl + 1, Ctrl + 2.. But didn’t knew that we’ll jump to the last tab when we press Ctrl + 9. Thanks for sharing the tip :)

    In Linux, replace Ctrl+ for Alt+ with the numbers trick. And it has worked with Firefox for quite some time, not just version 3.

    Also, if you have trouble counting ( ;) ), take a look at this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4346
