Question Close pinned tab in Firefox with hotkeys?


Hi all.

Is there a way to close pinned tabs in Firefox with hotkeys? For example, Ctrl+w closes any tab (both pinned and unpinned) in Chromium.

Thanks.

Hi...

From the article here, does this extension help? I'm not sure if the keys are configurable, though.

Regards...

Cool, nice one. Thanks ardvark71.

It's a start. I wonder if there's a way to edit the about:config to close pinned tabs with a hotkey. I really don't get why Firefox lacks what Chromium has had for a long time.

I'm not really sure. In case no one else here knows, you can try asking at at Mozilla's support forum or mozillaZine.
