Love the idea, but... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

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

I still like Gorgia's version the best... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

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:

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

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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

FLST is dead. Enter Focus Last Selected Tab Rated 4 out of 5 stars

@ shaneschofield
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.

FF3.5 workaround Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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.

Focus last selected tab don't work on firefox 3.x Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

No Good Rated 1 out of 5 stars

TabMix Plus already does this, and countless other useful things.

great addon.
is there a plan to update it for FF3.06 soon?

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The new version (that can be found on the homepage) works with Firefox 3.
Exactly what I was searching for...

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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!

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is exactly what I was seeking!! thank you man!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

(almost) Perfect Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what it says it does. Too bad it isn't compatible with Firefox 3
