Firefox - Changing tab with keyboard


Yeah, like the subject says: Is there any way I can change between open tabs with the keyboard instead of having to move my arm all the way to the mouse and then move the mouse all the long way between the tabs? :P

Alt + <number>.

For instance, hit <Alt + 1> to move to the leftmost tab.

I think ctrl + tab works the best.

That does not work with KDE, which uses the combination to switch virtual desktops.

That must be why no one else said anything about it. It works fine in gnome. Is there a shortcut key for switching desktops in gnome?
