Firefox 3.6: Enable Visual Previews When Using Ctrl+Tab (Windows Only)

Posted November 2, 2009 by Rob Rogers in Mozilla Firefox

By default, Ctrl+Tab will switch between open tabs in Firefox. But if you are running Windows 7, you should enable Visual Previews for a sexier way of navigating your open tabs.

1. Open Firefox 3.6.

2. Go to the address bar and input about:config.

3. Click through the warning window.

4. Locate browser.ctrlTab.preview and double-click it so that the value changes to True.

5. Restart Firefox.

Now you have a Visual Preview of what is in each tab when you use Ctrl+Tab.
