Firefox does not have this. Reason is that nobody would want to reopen the same page in new tab very often. You can open a new tab and copy paste the address in new tab's location bar.

Thanks for the reply, i am surprised that firefox does not support this though, not even a plug in?
Internet Explorer has this CTRL+K [duplicate tab]. Not gonna start using IE just for this feature though, ha ha...

A quick search turned up Tabberwocky, which looks like it does what you want.

There are three ways I know of to duplicate the current tab in Firefox:

1. Hold down Control and drag the current tab to an empty part of the tab bar. This will "copy" the tab.
2. Right click anywhere in the page and hold down Control while clicking the "Reload" menu item.
3. Give the address bar focus (Control+L) then hold down Alt and press Enter.

If you want to duplicate a tab, Tab Mix Plus has a keyboard shortcut for that:

Ctrl + Alt + T

Andrew's methods also work. :thumbsup:
