Last Tab is a free Firefox add-on which lets you switch to the last active tab using the hotkey. Although it’s just a simple plugin, but the purpose is great. It can be really handy when you are working with dozens of tabs and you don’t remember the previous one. Instead of first searching for the last active tab and then using the mouse cursor to access that tab, you can make use of this plugin to quickly move to the previous tab.
Switching to the previous tab is not a problem until the last active tab is adjacent or just before the active tab, but the problem occurs when last active tab is far behind the currently active tab. You might also have faced this situation when you are working with your Firefox browser and need to switch between tabs multiple times to use some information. This plugin can solve this problem for sure.
