I prefer using multiple Firefox windows. Until now I could easily switch between its different windows by using the command + ~ shortcut. But all of a sudden I can't do that anymore.

I can still use the shortcut for other apps but not for Firefox. Both the windows are in the same space and I don't recall making any changes.

Any hints on what's happened or how I can rectify this?

  • Are all the windows in the same Space? It only works if they are. – Tetsujin Jun 20 '17 at 18:55
  • I see the same problem, which hit suddenly after a Firefox restart (no version update). Strangely, some Firefox windows switch normally, while others react on cmd+~ by going back in tab's history. – 9000 Jul 12 '17 at 21:26

FWIW, I fixed the problem the following way.

I noticed that the +~ stops at a specific window, while works on other Firefox windows.

I closed that window, then re-opened it via History menu. The effect was gone, and +~ started working as expected.
