This is a quick tutorial to explain how to quickly switch to last used tab in Mozilla Firefox. Last Used Tab is a simple and open source add-on you can install in the browser to do that. In just a click or using a simple keyboard shortcut, you can switch to the last used tab. The add-on is very straightforward and you just install and forget it. To switch to the last used tab, you either use the toolbar icon or the keyboard shortcut.

In browser, you often work with so many tabs most of the time. And if you want to quickly jump to the last tab you were working then it can be a  little tedious. But with the Last Used Tab add-on, you can jump to the last tab you were working on in the blink of an eye. This Firefox add-on is open source as well and you can inspect or contribute to its code if you want to.
