This came through as a question on reddit with 87 net votes, showing a screenshot of Chrome's "Search Tabs" feature (in the tab strip).

People pointed out that you can search tab titles via the address bar using the % restriction token. However, this is a bit of a multi-step process, unlike the same feature in Chrome, which allows people to do a Ctrl-shift-a and begin typing for the tab vs. the Firefox feature, which requires people to do Ctrl-l then type % space and begin typing the tab title.

Ideally, there would be a keyboard shortcut that would focus the address bar with the restriction token already populated.

I was searching for this feature, but I don't see any easy way. Most other browsers have this ability, it would be great if Firefox had it too.

Please add this functionality. As others have pointed out, finding the right tab quickly is a very common activity and the fewer keys needed to accomplish this, the better.

Life is short, implementing keybinding support for searching across active tabs is crucial for the lives of millions of developers.

PLEASE ADD THIS FUNCTIONALITY
