After pinning a tab as app tab in Firefox 16, I do not like it to be "in the way" when navigating through the other tabs using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Tab.

Scenario: I open an online radio channel, want to keep the music playing in an app tab, thus do not need the app tab in the navigation anymore.

Unfortunately, I could neither find an about:config setup nor a plugin for that.

Sorry. I work on the Firefox Project, and there is no direct way to skip it. It is possible that there is an extension for it though. You should check here: – Josiah Nov 9 '12 at 13:26

As far as I'm aware, there are no native options of the behaviour you require.

Solution: Install AppTabs Plus, tick the options box that says "Exclude from tab-switching".
