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.
Yes, this feature would be really helpful!
This is literally the ONLY reason I am not using Firefox anymore on iOS. It is just so clunky and non immersive the way they implemented NEW TAB and SWITCH TABS functions. Please bring this, the way safari does it. I really wanna use Firefox altogether but I simply can't when I have Firefox on PC and Safari on the iPhone. At this state it's easier to just use Safari for both, and I really prefer Firefox on Mac!! Please listen to us. I even made a review and the reply was whatever.
This would be wonderful! I miss it so much. Using the tab button is so slow…
This would be brilliant!
This is the only thing that I see missing from Firefox iOS anymore.
Google chrome on iOS also have it, partially. they allow switch tab but if you swipe while you are on last tab, they won't create a new tab. It's like Apple UX engineers sat down and really make a nice user experience regarding location of url bar and the way we switch tabs and create new tab, all with gestures.
They invented the wheel, please use it.
