Favorites bar problem with the setting "When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately"
"When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately" is happening - even though the box is unchecked. Only in favorites bar, not in web page or Firefox homepage Shortcuts (1 row or 2 rows) or Recent activity.
It's very irritating, so i hope there is a solution...?

Try changing this preference to true in about:config. browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground
These prefs on the about:config page control whether links are opened with a left-click in the background or get focus: You can toggle the default action for opening a link in the background by holding down the Shift key when you use Ctrl plus left-click or middle-click a link.
- browser.tabs.loadInBackground (normal links)
- browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground (bookmarks)
- browser.search.context.loadInBackground (context menu: Search)
