Firefox Tabs!

I want to ask:
Is there a way to move through the mozilla tabs by useng a keybord combination? I mean, If I have a lot of sheels opened as different tabs, I can move through them by holding Shift and pressing the arrows. Is there something simmilar- or do I have to use only the mouse?

I already know about Ctrl-T & Ctrl-W.
But the Ctrl-Tab moves me between the different Desktops ant has nothing to do with the Tabs!
It's Impossible that there isn't a shortcut to move between tabs!

If you use alt + 1 thru 9 you can change tabs.

If you use ctrl + page up or page down you can scroll thru the tabs.

I tested both in KDE, not sure if it is different in othe window managers or dekstop enviorments.
