Changing tabs isn't working properly


Switching tabs isn’t happening properly.

Os: MacOs
Scenario: I’ve pinned few tabs in my browser. Trying to go from one tab to other using keys

control + shift + tab

Expected: Tab should change from one after the other. But the browser is behaving weirdly.

Tabs are changing unevenly and picking the random one instead of going to the next tab.

Ctrl + Shift + Tab should move to the previous open tab.
Ctrl + tab should move to the next open tab.

Can you elaborate on what is actually happening or share a short screen recording of the behavior?

Exactly when I follow the first option, the behaviour isn’t happening as expected.
Here’s the video for your reference @Mattches

That certainly is strange. My first instinct is that one of the extensions you have installed is causing the conflict. Can you try the following:

  • Try opening a Private browsing window and see if you get the same behavior there
  • Try creating a temp new profile and see if the behavior persists there.

@Rohit552 Have you tried disabling Cycle through the most recently used tabs with Ctrl-Tab? I had that feature being enabled by default at the start. You can follow these steps:-

  • Go to settings.
  • Go to the Appearance settings.
  • You’ll notice the option for Cycling through tabs at last. Toggle and try it again.

@ZEUSGMJ I don’t remember when this Cycle through the most recently used tabs with Ctrl-Tab flag was on. Just now i made it off and its working as expected.

Thanks for the suggestion. I’m frustrated, with this small flag till now.

@Mattches As you said, i tried in incognito. Yes, there changing tabs are working as expected.

Great catch – I completely forgot about that setting tbh, that’s on me :sweat_smile:
