I'm using a tree-style tab bar with many tabs open, and often jump between them.

Is there a way or add-on that allows me to switch to the tab I was on before?

Note that I do not mean to jump to the left or right neighbour tab (Strg-PageUp/Down), but to the tab that was focused last - like history back/forward, but with tabs.

On before? was that tab closed, or is that tab or page still open? – ahmed Aug 7 '12 at 20:42
Still open. I am on some tab, press say Alt-6 to go to tab 6, and after some time I want to go back. – nh2 Aug 7 '12 at 20:53

Tab Mix Plus has this option: Events -> Tab Features -> Ctrl-Tab navigates tabs in the most recently used order.

Also, LastTab and Most Recent Tab do the job as well.

Note that Vimperator users can jump to the last-used tab with Ctrl6.

I use Vimperator together with Tree Style Tabs and I use this feature often.
