This extension does not work on the new Mac M1 chip computers

This extension does not work on the new Macbook Apple Silicon chip M1 laptop. I have tried to reinstall, shutdown, and install. Nothing works. It guess it's not compatible yet?

I have this extension on my 10 year old Mac, it works fine.


  • You'll have to get me more details on the error, screenshots and https://jasonsavard.com/wiki/Error_logs

    can help me.

    It cycles through the tabs from first to last in sequential order.

    There's no error message. The Chrome browser simply does not respond to the extension.

    I assume were talking about the Recent Tabs extension, does method #1 work in the options?

    Yes, I believe we are talking about the same thing. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/recent-tabs/ocllfmhjhfmogablefmibmjcodggknml?hl=en

    If by method #1, are you referring to:

    extension options, then > Usage #1: Ideal for developers (Recommedned)

    The answer is yes, I did not tweak anything. It's all default.

    Usage #1: Ideal for developers (Recommended)

  • What have you set as your shortcut key? and does the extension respond - but instead of toggling between the last 2 tabs and simply cycles through all of them?

  • I did not set any keys. Everything is default, ctrl+tab for last used tab. Chrome does not respond.

  • So you'll have to set a shortcut key specifically, ex. try Ctrl+Shift+1

    Do you mean try Usage #2: For basic users? If so, I reloaded all tabs as per the direction.

    It still does not work.

    Here's a screen shot of my setting.

  • No I'm referring to step 1 and entering the shortcut key here on this page: chrome://extensions/shortcuts

    I'd highly recommend anyone new not to touch chrome://extensions/shortcuts

    It screwed up my settings and I can't get it back.

    My old setting was ctrl+tab. Now when I try to press ctrl+tab to set the combo. It's giving me error message and telling me to use a letter for the second key in the combo.

  • Yeah Chrome used to allow Ctrl+Tab to overwritten, but in recent Chrome updates it was disallowed with a few other shortcuts that reserved for Chrome.

  • What a pity! You should not advise people to touch chrome://extensions/shortcuts

  • The issue only occured for you because you had installed the extension in the past, new users can successfully set their own shortcut keys without worries.

  • ctrl+tab can not be reset to be the previous tab shortcut. The other combos are just weird.
