Hi,

Need ability to left-mouseclick on tab to toggle most recently used tab.

Anyone know of what to set in about:config or an extension to enable this
in FireFox 66.0.2 ?

Thanks!

No, there is neither a built-in feature for this, nor can an extension change the behavior when you left-click on a tab.

As far as I know, the best you can do is an extension that adds a new button for one-click switching. There are several extensions along these lines, including one I created: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/switch-to-previous-active-tab/

See also Ctrl + Tab.
browser.ctrlTab.recentlyUsedOrder

@ dickvl

Why would you reply with a keyboard sequence when
I asked about a mouseclick?

Because what you are asking for can't be done and dickvl was trying to be helpful?

Try this extension:
Most Recent Tab https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addo ... ecent-tab/

The rather large file size of the extension (167 KB) appears to be caused by a rather large PNG image (most recent tab 1.1.png; 172.2 KB).
