In Firefox (mostly for Windows), I know I can press Ctrl+1-9 to change to a certain tab. I have 10 "app tabs" opened at any given time, on top of my other tabs. Is there a way to use the keyboard to navigate with the Ctrl+number shortcut, but not have it include App Tabs?

Yes, I know about Ctrl+PgUp/Down/TAB, but that will take too long sometimes.

  • What do you mean by "app tab?"

See this addon(Numberedtabs) work for you.

Displays the number of the tab in the title of the tab. Now you can switch tabs quickly in firefox with Ctrl-[1-8] or Cmd-[1-8].


Use the AppTabs Plus addon.

Check the option Exclude from tab-switching.
