Have you tried ctrl-pgup and ctrl-pgdwn for switching tabs? That's what
it's mapped to in mozilla.
ctrl-t opens new tabs on mozilla, but I'm sure there's a way to remap it
to anything else you want in prefs.js. Don't know how right of the top
of my head. Sorry.
As to closing tabs with ctrl-w, it may be a focus issue. I often have to
click on the page with the mouse before I can close it because focus is
elsewhere (usually the sidebar). This is one of the most annoying issues
I have with mozilla.
