Keyboard Shortcut for Tab Duplication (KSFTD) adds a keyboard shortcut, Alt+/, that allows tab duplication through a means other than Ctrl‐clicking or middle‐clicking the “Reload current page” button while maintaining the same duplication behavior. For example, KSFTD‐based tab duplication preserves the document scroll position and contents of text fields.

By default, a notification is briefly displayed when a tab is duplicated to indicate that tab duplication occurred as a result of the extension’s keyboard shortcut.

Notification display, notification icon display, and notification duration can be configured via the extension’s options page.

(Note: Due to a bug, notification options are ignored in version 3.0.1. They work in version 3.1.0 which was submitted for review on 2017 August 7.)

Options utilize sync storage (as opposed to local storage) and will therefore synchronize across Mozilla Firefox installations for users using Firefox Sync with appropriate Sync preferences enabled.

KSFTD is localized in English, simplified Chinese, and traditional Chinese. Localization can be changed by installing locale‐specific versions of Mozilla Firefox and defaults to English if no localization is available for a locale.

Sorry. Doesn't work.

I Used Tab Mix Plus before, where I could configure a shortcut for Clone Tab too. I got so used to it. I was so annoyed to right click a tab and click. Now there is a solution! Thank you. The only problem is the shortcut. Alt + / is hard to reach on a german keyboard. Actually I have to use Alt + Shift + 7 to clone a tab. Could you please make the shortcut configurable? From Tab Mix Plus I am used to Ctrl + Alt + T. Yes, you are right that is similar to Alt + Shift + 7 :-). I just have to get used to it.

Great idea and super helpful, though I only wish he selected something more consistent with already existing tab shortcuts. Ctrl-T opens a new tab, Shift-Ctrl-T undoes tab close, it would have been neat to have something like Alt-T for duplication. OCD nitpicking aside, it's still great a add-on. Thanks so much!

Risk impact

Keyboard Shortcut for Tab Duplication requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Keyboard Shortcut for Tab Duplication if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Keyboard Shortcut for Tab Duplication has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
