Firefox 1.5 and Tabbed Browsing on OS X
Firefox 1.5, released yesterday, breaks the Cmd+Tab/Cmd+Shift+Tab shortcut for switching tabs that I had grown to love so much and was one of the primary reasons I've stuck with Firefox over Camino and Safari. Instead, Firefox now uses Cmd+Option+Left/Right, which requires use two hands and some hunting around.
Enter keyconfig, an extension designed to allow users to add and modify keyboard shortcuts. A comment on the extention page details how to add next/previous tab functionality to keyconfig using
gBrowser.mTabContainer.advanceSelectedTab(±1); Unfortunately, that command didn't allow for looping through tabs, so I modified the code a bit to allow for that functionality. Here it is:
gBrowser.mTabContainer.selectedIndex = 0;
