I know about Ctrl + tab and Ctrl + Shift + tab to switch between the tabs inside the Mozilla Firefox browser. I also know about Ctrl + <index> to access a certain tab from the opened tabs of Mozilla Firefox.

Is any tab regarding arrow keys in order to switch between tabs?

No shortcut with arrows, but here is something similar:

CTRL + PgUp/PgDn will switch to next or previous tab.

Use Ctrl+N where N is 1 to 9, you may switch to the Nth Tab immediately.

Crtl+1-8 is correct, but Crtl+9 is the last Tab – Milde May 12 '10 at 13:11

A good add-on for Firefox ist LastTab.

On OS X you can also use option+command+left/right or command+{/}. I don't know if there are comparable shortcuts on Windows or Linux. See
