I am hunting around and reading the descriptions of various tab extensions to no avail, how can this be done?

Having the selector wrap around to the beginning, not having bulk tabs wrap around to a second line of tabs.

The help is appreciated, I installed that module but it doesn't do what I was hoping it would. I'll try to explain it better.

Say with tabs 1 2 3 4 (5), the fifth is selected, I issue the "Next Tab" command, how can the selector wrap around to the first tab instead of not moving?

Are you using the keyboard shortcut ctrl+tab to switch tabs? That works as you want it to (i.e. when the last tab in the row is selected, hitting ctrl+tab switches focus to the first tab in the row). Do you have any extensions that may be modifying this behaviour?

Yes I do actually, thanks for pointing that out. I had installed keyconfig which doesn't fully mimic the original function, apparently.

The actual command to switch tabs is gBrowser.mTabContainer.advanceSelectedTab(1) for forward 1 and gBrowser.mTabContainer.advanceSelectedTab(-1) for back 1.
