This addon is meant to help toggling between 2 active tabs back and forth with a click/keyboard shortcut

Highlight 2 active tabs (of the same window) by clicking on them. The addon keeps tracks of the last 2 active tabs dynamically.

Clicking on the Toggle button (or Alt+Q shortcut) toggles the active tab.

The addon is just a naive port of the legacy addon with the same functionality (by firesofmay)
Risk impact

TabToggle requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

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

TabToggle 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.

Exactly what I needed. Firefox should include this functionality by default, and should allow you to select what hotkeys to use (ALT+Q is perfect)
