Fluxbox is also a great window manager in this sense, as it is super
light-weight, and easy to configure, keybindings included. Scott
Robbins has a good page on it.

In my version of Firefox, Ctrl-Tab moves to the next tab. Just like
Alt-Tab for windows, in most distros' default window manager

WRT the extension, I do not know of one either, but that would be a
great way to learn how to program Firefox / Mozilla extensions. Why
don't you write one?

You could also look around in "about:config" in Firefox. Just type
"about:config" into the location bar and press enter. There are a lot
of config settings, but you can filter them by keyword. I tried "tab",
"key", and "binding" without any luck thus far. Poke around, and you
might find something useful.
