Activate the last active tab when closing a tab

  • Is there a way to change the behavior when closing a tab? Currently it opens the tab on the right hand side, but I would prefer the previously active one. In old Opera you could choose:
    When closing a tab
    Activate the last active tab
    Activate the next tab
    Activate first tab opened from current tab

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi @tsero, you can install the Classic Tabs extension for that purpose 😉

    You just solved one of my annoyances with Opera 39, Thanks. Now if I could just reconfigure the 1 and 1 keys (tabs backwards and forwards) to the same as Chrome, I'd be ecstatic. If you're trying to tab from a Google search page, it just types the number in the Google search box.
