Firefox: Reopen Last Tab

Since M. didn’t know about this the other day, I thought I’d mention it, in case it helps someone else: Firefox has a massively-useful feature I’ve been using all the time: reopen the last tab that was closed.

You can find it under History → Recently closed tabs. There’s a Recently closed windows list to go with it.

Reopen last tab is bound to Alt-Shift-T for me, though your mileage may vary, since I’ve adjusted Firefox’s bindings to suit my modifier keys (what’s a Meta for?).

I should also add that Alt-1 is bound to “Go to 1st tab”, Alt-2 to “Go to 2nd tab”, and so forth. I sometimes find this to be quicker than moving my hand off of the keyboard to click on a tab.

    Thanks for that. About once a week I have a spasm of “Why in hell did I just close that tab????”

    Only once a week? You’re a better person than I am.

    Welcome to Opera five years ago. For the last year or so it’s even been possible to reopen a closed window. There’s s nice little recycling bin in the top right corner, so no need to futz about with menues.

    Cycling through tabs can be done with right-click + scroll wheel. But it does not appear that alt-1 &c does anything, no.
