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.
When is this necessary feature coming?
I don't use firefox because of lack of gestures to handle tabs.
any update on this feature? This is the only reason why my default browser is still safari.
Can't wait for this since this is one of the only few things that have made my switch to iOS difficult.
How does an idea move into the implementation pipeline? I see ideas with fewer votes being implemented.How do we get this into FF developers' attention?
This is a really handy feature and i only miss this feature in firefox.
My suggestion was that if firefox can implement the tab gestures like Safari's can from swiping tabs just by swiping left or right instead of having to hit the tab button on firefox.
The tab button being there is fine, just the implementation to swipe through tabs would make navigating a lot quicker.
