I assume you are talking about Aquamacs?

I am not sure of the logic, and have probably changed it eons ago in my 

but, I find the easiest way to move among tabs is to use ALT-COM-LEFt or 
ALT-COM-RIGHT arrows.  that will move in the way that you anticipate.

I use C-x left or right arrow to move to the different buffers. What I can't understand is the logic behind the direction of the move. For example if I'm in the tab with a number 2 and type C-x left arrow I move to tab 3 or it opens the message buffer that I didn't want open, I would expect to be moved to tab 1. Can someone explain the logic or how to change the setting.
