Please update this for Quantum, it's literally the most essential add-on for firefox, period.
An absolute waste of... everything!
The options window is pretty garbled, with lists not showing or selectable, so it's impossible to use any of the list-based options. The one reason I installed this, to revert to last-used tab when current tab is closed, also doesn't work at all. Thumbs down.
There is no need for a plugin any longer, it's build-in now, if you know how:
1. open the url "about:config"
2. search for "browser.ctrlTab.previews"
3. set it to "true"
Now you can switch back to the last tab via "Ctrl + Tab". You have to release both keys, if you hold Ctrl afterwards, you get the tab preview.
Sadly, this doesn't work anymore. I have created a substitute (Supertab): https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/supertab/
You can use FLST to Focus Last Selected Tab
Lasttab is not needed anymore.
Last tab config on Firefox:
1. browse about:config
2. find browser.ctrlTab.previews
3. set true
LastTab was great. Now it is dead -too bad! This Add-On offered features and simple configuration that should be native to Firefox and easily selectable from the "options" menu.
It was the most needed extension. The one that even Chrome can't have (they block altering such shortcuts). And now what? Mozilla broke it with the rapid development..
Any hero out there to fix this small gem?
Please fix this great little extension for FF20.x
It used to be great, but today I discovered that it entirely fails in Firefox 20. Not even the settings dialog shows anything sane. The author doesn't want to be contacted and seems inactive for 2 years. Can anybody recommend a good alternative?
I just upgraded to Firefox 20.0 moments ago, and LastTab no longer works. CTRL-TAB just navigates to the next tab to the right, and clicking on the tab you're currently on no longer takes you to the previous tab you looked at; instead, nothing happens.
Looks like I'll be looking for a replacement, after all these years.
For the last year, this extension has caused some strange tab problems for me: I'd click a tab to select it, but a different tab would become active instead. It only happened sometimes.
Anyway, I looked for a replacement and found Tab Utilities Lite, which, so far, is meeting my needs. I hope this extension can be updated soon.
Cool... But does not work with Firefox nightly 20.0a1
LastTab keeps me sane. Thank you so much for this mind-saving extension.
This add-on used to work but no longer does as far as focusing to the correct previous tab after closing a tab. Navix mentions his fix at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/lasttab/reviews/333296/ which I installed and it works for me on FF 10.
This is definitely an excellent add-on, I have been using it for many years. The script involved with focusing upon closing tabs seems to have not been updated correctly and it was bothering me so I fixed it myself.
(download the xpi file and install it manually via the firefox add-on page)
I did not make this add-on and claim no credit for it, I am merely a fan and was tired of it not working properly.
I have to agree with ayubaamir, 5 stars if it was working but it is nonfunctional currently.
It appears to consistently return to the second-to-last tab.
I was dependent on this addon but I guess its not working anymore with new firefox update. When current tab is closed it focuses (in my opinion) randomly to any other tab or skips one tab in between. Also, in my opinion very bad options in this program which rarely makes sense...what does "behavior: quick" or "tab scope: current window" mean anyway. Can't the options be simple like they were before.
Five stars when it was working and only two stars now...unless the makers of the program fix it to make it work again.
A great, simple add-on that I've used for years.
Unfortunately it seems to be broken (perhaps since the last FF update). It now takes you to the tab before the previous tab when you close a tab.
The simplest and the best tab switcher. It's not heavy and very smooth. Keep up the great work.
This is a very useful plugin, which I couldn't live without. A suggestion would be to give the ability to disable the middle-mouse click tab close.
I use a laptop's mousepad, and it is very easy to accidentally have another finger touching the mousepad when I click on it. This translates into a middle-mouse click, which then closes the tab I click on. Very frustrating!
Very conviniet way of focusing last selected tab closing active tab
The ability to limit how many tabs to remember would make it faster and the menu easier to navigate.
I couldn't get LastTab to work when pressing cntrl-tab. When I tried to add ctrl-tab as my key choice to switch between tabs LastTab switched between the LastTab preference window and the other open addon window. It seemed like the preference layout was convoluted for something that I just want to switch between the last used tabs using cntl-tab. I used LastTab before for a short period of time and it worked then, so I don't know why it's not working now. I've tried this add-on for the LastTime.
