Since back in 2004, some releases perform as the following: Open a TAB. See a link you would like tp open as a new Tab.

EITHER CAN HAPPEN: 1. It put that link as a "NEW TAB" AND the Cursor STAYS WHERE IT IS. Allowing you to select more links to create MORE NEW TABS, etc.

2. It put that link as a "NEW TAB AND MOVES THE cursor TO THE NEW TAB JUST CREATED and you are no longer on the original TAB and can not create/move more links to new tabs.

90% of the time I prefer to STAY so I can create multiple LINKS as NEW TABS, THEN go to the new tabs for viewing.

is that an OPTION or a "NEW FEATURE"?

See this answer for opening new tabs: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1328185#answer-1396449

I use an addon which makes each new tab open immediately to the right of the active tab: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-tabs-next-to-current/
