Ctrl + Tab / Shift + Ctrl + Tab

Post by harvestmoon » 2016-03-23, 10:02

How can I disable my tabs from showing when I press this combo?

I want to be able to cycle back & forth normally, switching the focus to the next or previous tab, one tab at a time.

You can go to about:config and change browser.ctrlTab.previews from "true" (the default) to "false". This will let you toggle between tabs with Ctrl+Tab/Shift+Ctrl+Tab without seeing any previews. Or, if you don't want to mess around with about:config, you can use Ctrl+PgUp/Ctrl+PgDn to switch tabs instead (but be careful, as adding Shift to those will reorder tabs rather than switch between them).

Thank you both for your reply. This solves my problem 4 different ways :clap: . I'm happy. :thumbup:

For some reason I didn't think I could about:config Pale Moon :think: . I think it's because I read :coffee: there is a Pale Moon tool that assists in making configuration changes to the backend.

There is, but it is a convenience tool for the more common advanced settings -- it doesn't mean the "raw" method isn't available ;)
