Firefox View is great, but there doesn't seem to be a shortcut to quick-switch to its tab, which isn't accessible via Ctrl+1–9.

Thoughts on assigning either Ctrl+` (backtick) or Ctrl+0 for this purpose? I think Ctrl+` is preferable, because View is pinned as the first tab, and it's also less likely to be accidentally pressed. Activating the shortcut would open the View tab if the user's on a non-View tab, or restore the user's previous tab if they are on the View tab.

would also love to see a keyboard shortcut here

I feel like ctr+` would work well on mac too. it wouldn't put it into the same flow of jumping to tabs by their number, like OP suggested. but it would keep it in a familiar flow of ctrl+tab to cycle through tabs in order, with just a slight reach up to hit ctrl+` to jump straight to FF View

Yes, Firefox View is so cool. ctrl+` is easy to perform.

Couldn't believe there isn't a keyboard shortcut for it already.

I too believe Ctrl+` could work. But any shortcut is already better than none (as it currently is)

Speaking of keyboard shortcuts...

One of our Firefox Product Managers is exploring potential changes around hotkeys/keyboard shortcuts and just kicked off a discussion thread here on Connect to gather more insights from the community. Check it out and feel free to add your input — it's a great way to speak directly with the product team. Here's a link to the thread:

Hotkeys? Yes, please! 

Hope to see ya there 💪
