How do i get the old CTRL + TAB function back

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/07/19

I hate those updates (this time around FireFox 65) where suddenly the UX changes without an obvious way to switch back to the old behaviour. [WayBack] How do i get the old CTRL + TAB function back? | Firefox Support Forum | Mozilla Support led me to the proper name (“browser.ctrlTab.recentlyUsedOrder”), and a confirmation of the below steps in:

I by now know this is only for new user profiles, but since I do not sync profiles (as almost all of my equipment servers different use cases), but still have the same physical user (me), I want consistent behaviour. See [WayBack/] Enable “Ctrl+Tab cycles through tabs in recently used order” feature by default in new profiles

Script needed

Too bad I could not find a way to script this: my [WayBack] Mozilla Bugzilla “browser.ctrlTab.recentlyUsedOrder” “script” – Google Search turned no useful results.

If you have a scripting workaround, please let me know.

Resetting to the old tab behaviour

For me, the easiest way is to

  1. browse to about:config,
  2. confirm “I accept the risk!”,
  3. type “tab” in the “Search” pane,
  4. select browser.ctrlTab.recentlyUsedOrder,
  5. double click on the “browser.ctrlTab.recentlyUsedOrder” entry to switch from non-bold true (default value; wrong) to false (actual value; correct).

No need for any save button: the change is immediate.

These might help me script it:
