The latest Firefox doesn't work with this add-on. The "Tab Mix Plus" add-on has this (among many other features) if you're looking for a flip back to previous tab when clicking or closing
Not only does Gorgia's bring focus to the last selected tab when closing the active tab but it also re-focuses to the previous tab by left-clicking the active tab (tabflipping). That helps me find the last tab I was on if I have quite a few tabs open or want to quickly compare two tabs that have similar content (just keep left-clicking on one of the tabs and it cycles back and forth between the two). Nice!
You can still find it at the bottom of his page here:
Focus Last Selected Tab v0.9.6.1 is out!
You can find it at:
cmddegi version works fine
You should post it here as a legitimate addon
OK, the FLST clone works great for me "Focus Last Selected Tab" v0.9.5.2. My single most used add-on for years now. I felt impaired when it was discontinued after upgrading to 3,5
I had this in use for a long time and liked it really. Because it hasn't been updated i made a new version based on Mike Hokenson's code in "Focus Last Selected Tab" v0.9.5.2 (thanks a lot!) and the original FLST, including the features (tabflipping and hotkey) of FLST. It is my first firefox addon, but if anyone would like to test it: http://freenet-homepage.de/cmddegi/firefox/flstflip.xpi
Thanks a lot. Was slowly going crazy with FLST not working correctly with FF 3,5. "Focus Last Selected Tab" v0.9.5.2 works perfectly.
Author has not updated for FF3.5, so tabs do not return to previous selected after closing. To work around this, I installed another extension called "Focus Last Selected Tab v0.9.5.2 (http://www.gozer.org/mozilla/extensions/). I still have FLST installed, but only with Tab Flipping enabled. With the combination of these two extensions, I have tabs behaving the way I want.
Don't work on Firefox 3.x. Does any simple analogues exists? TabMix is very heavy and slow when using for one this function!
Does not work with last version of FireFox
If you can't install this version, try the one at the FLST homepage. It's from 2008 & installed in Firefox 3 for me without intervention! :)
This is great for people that want extensions that do precisely what we want -- not ones bloated with "countless other useful things" we never use. It works great with other interesting targeted tab extensions that normally fail with an all-in-one tab manager lacking their features.
TabMix Plus already does this, and countless other useful things.
is there a plan to update it for FF3.06 soon?
Too bad I had to manually download the file and hack the "max version number" to make it work with FF 3.05. This works great with FF 3.05, wish the author would post a new release. No other add-on that I know of lets me switch between the last tabs using the keyboard!
The new version (that can be found on the homepage) works with Firefox 3.
Exactly what I was searching for...
I think that over half of the firefox community would benefit from this add-on. Why it isnt just a setting we will never know!
This is exactly what I was seeking!! thank you man!
Perfect. Was looking for something that does what this extension does for a long time after shifting to FF3 (long time user of Opera).
This extension does work in FF3.0.1, just go to the author's site to install from there.
Was previously using Tab mix plus in pre-ff3 days, now though, TMB is completely failing.
Does exactly what it says it does. Too bad it isn't compatible with Firefox 3
a must have indeed!
A must have. Fapulous!
Ahh, this is so natural. It really should be a default feature.
But what would really make this a perfect package is if it included the feature of opening new tabs next to the current one.
Basically, what addon #1956 does ("Tabs Open Relative").
I really think that it should be the default behavior of firefox. There is the FF3 compatible one on the author's homepage!
Finally... I missed this so much...
