Is it normal that opened bookmark tab is placed at the end of the tab list?

Posted

I realised this after a while, that this happen and that it is not good. Hyperlinks tabs are placed at the beginning of the tab list and bookmark tabs are added to the end which causes unnecessary scrolling when having many tabs open. So, can i make both open one way? How? I was search in about:config and can not find any setting.

Is it normal (happen in your case) that the opening bookmark (i am holding Ctrl key because i do not want to reuse current tab) place the tab at the end of the tab list?

Yes, it is good workaround to install https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-tabs-next-to-current/ as it ads new tabs always on the left (even new tab button). Thank you

Though i found thanks to yout tip, that Firefox has setting:

about:config?filter=browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent

(run it in a new tab) and when you set it to True, it start adding new tabs always next to current tab which means one no longer need to waste time scrolling which was main problem in my case.

Yes, that's the default behavior. There doesn't appear to be an about:config entry to allow you to change this behavior.

You can try a third-party add-on like Open Tabs Next To Current, but it may not work in every situation.

Hope this helps.
