To close tabs in Firefox, open Firefox on your computer, open a new tab, press and hold the Control key on your keyboard, and then press the W key. Although there are other ways to close tabs in Firefox, this option is easier. It takes less than one minute.
- Launch Firefox on your computer
To launch Firefox, go to the Windows toolbar, click Start, and then click on the Firefox icon located at the top of the Windows menu. This opens the browser and a new tab. To avoid closing the entire browser at the end of this process, click the plus sign located next to the new tab to open another tab.
- Select the tab you want to close
To select the tab you want to close, click on that particular tab at the top of the browser menu to activate it. This process is necessary only when multiple tabs have been opened in the same browser.
- Close the selected tab
To close the selected tab, press and hold the Control button on your keyboard, and then press the W button. The control button on the keyboard is labeled "Ctrl.” Repeat this procedure on every other tab you want to close.
