I have a MacBook and I'm using Firefox. Using the editor on the about:config page, I wish to modify the options of browser.gesture.swipe.left (or right) such that it will switch to the tab to the left (right) instead of going to previous/forward pages.

What should I write in the string value for that?

Thanks

  • Wish Firefox also had what Safari has in Window menu -> Show next tab. But since Ctrl + tab works there and also there's a preference for cycling in recent order, I think you should see what it modifies in the preferences under the hood to get some clues. (notify me by @ankii)

  • Previous tab: Browser:PrevTab
  • Next tab: Browser:NextTab

  • browser.gesture.swipe.right;Browser:NextTab and browser.gesture.swipe.left;Browser:PrevTab are relevant, But still couldn't get it to cycle tabs at swipe. Do you know about the ctrl tab switching? And also about the going back and forth in history ? I feel that clashes between the shortcuts need to be removed.
