Swiping between open tabs would be wonderful. Implementation could be exactly how it's done in Safari.

If you're in private mode then swiping would only be between private tabs. Swiping normal tabs would only navigate between normal tabs.

This is not the same as https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/ideas/swipe-between-tabs-private-tabs-and-synced-tabs/idc-p/473#M245, which asks for swiping between all open and all private tabs.

This is literally the only reason I don’t use Firefox on iOS

I can't believe this still hasn't been implemented. This is an essential feature that I took for granted when I switched from Android to iOS.

Please implement this! I switched from Chrome to FF and I’m considering going back. It’s so frustrating not being able to quickly navigate through tabs and having to open the main tab menu every time I want to go to another tab.

Switching between tabs on IOS really needs urgent attention. The current way is just unintuitive when having tried Safari (and even Brave) and so quickly gotten accustomed to how it (they) handle tab switching.

Slide between tabs

On IOS it would be great if I can switch between opened tabs by just sliding horizontally on the tab bar would save a-lot of time rather than going to the active tabs and choosing the tab I want

Gesture Ideas

In the Firefox for iOS, we currently do not have the option to hold our finger on the navigation bar and swipe left or right to switch tabs. It would be great if this feature were added. Additionally, it would be helpful to have the option to swipe two fingers towards the center of the screen to view all open tabs.

Swiping between tabs on is also a dealbreaker for me. Please implement it and I am sure you will gain more users on iOS. Thank you!
