Oh undo function, what would I do without you?
Well, I would probably be forced to do it again – but that is beside the point. I love being able to reopen a closed tab or window in Firefox. It has saved my rear end many times. This is just one of those Firefox tips you really should memorize.
Tab Restore Shortcuts
If you accidently close a tab, you can bring it back by pressing the following keyboard combination:
Ctrl + Shift + T
The great thing about it, is the newly restored tab keeps all the surfing history too. You can can keep doing it to, to browse backwards through all the tabs you have closed in your current browsing session.
You can also bring back closed Firefox tabs or windows by clicking on “History” in the menu bar. At the very bottom, you should see selectable menus for:
- Recently Closed Tabs
- Recently Closed Windows
There you have it. This tab and window restore tip will help you get out of a pinch more than a few times, so it is a good one to memorize. This is one of my favorite keyboard shortcuts and Firefox browsing tips, second only to Ctrl + T to open a new Firefox tab.
