Undo last closed Tabs in Firefox and Opera

Accidentally closed a tab in Firefox or Opera? Don't worry! You can bring them back very quickly. Just use the ways listed below to re-open them.
Note: These shortcuts are for Windows only.

Firefox users have many choices. However, some of them may not work if you have addons installed.

Ctrl + F12
Ctrl + Shift + T
If you have a 3 button mouse, middle-click on the tab-bar (not on the tab)

Of the above three, only Ctrl + F12 worked for me although a lot of sites are suggesting Ctrl + Shift + T. I have Firefox with certain addons like TabMix Plus installed.

Opera users will find it easy as the key combination is Ctrl + Z . It is also the default key combination for Windows applications.

for me Ctrl+Shift+T worked, Ctrl+F12 didn't
Vivek - May be you are using Firefox 2 or you don't have certain addons like TabMix Plus installed
