    I came across a thread that said to cycle through tabs in Safari, you use command+shift+left/right arrow. I tried it, but it doesn't always work. Sometimes it only goes to the next window, but doesn't go back. Just now it worked fine. Can anyone tell me if they've had this problem and what's going on, or what needs to be done to have this work properly?

    a more reliable method of cycling through tabs is command-{ and command-}. the arrow shortcut you are using doesn't work if an input field is selected.

    That doesn't cycle through tabs... That goes to the last page you were at. I tried it while I was reading this thread and instead of going to my other tab I had open, it went back to this list of threads. Weird.

    You're doing command-[ not command-{. In other words, you have to hold down the shift key.

    Yes, Command-Shift-[ and Command-Shift-] work.
