Will you PLEASE bring back the choice on how tabs will open, either all at the end after the last tab, or arranged with similar next to each other. It used to be a CHOICE!

Posted

Tabs gone wild! Choice of how tabs open is removed and function of having tabs open only at end of all tabs is gone. Instead, tabs now open next to similar or same site, so they can be jumping all over the place and instead of finding them in the order you opened them, you have to hunt around to see which site it is sitting by instead. I can easily remember the order in which I opened them, not so easy to remember the site each one may be associated with, especially if they were opened in the order of an article and therefore in the order I wanted to read them.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== on this latest update 3.6

More Information

Suddenly after opening tabs they are in different order than I expected, even times I thought maybe it hadn't opened. I then find them elsewhere and finally figure out they were opening similar or same site tabs next to each other. NOT the way I like it. There used to be a CHOICE on the order in which tabs would open. Please return that choice to Firefox. Till then, I have discovered an extension which should correct the improper change to my tab line, but sure would be nice if it was a choice easily accessed within Firefox instead of needing an extension.

Type about:config in the URL bar and hit Enter. If you see the warning, you can confirm that you want to access that page.

Filter = browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent

Double-click that preference to change the value to false

I found an add-on extension called "New Tabs At The End" which I installed and it's still working fine even after upgrade to 3.6.7

Thanks for the other method too, Edmeister.
