How do I make a new tab open all the say to the right, as it used to, instead of just to the LEFT of the last tab?

more options
 I have 6 tabs set up and have become very accustomed to the position they’re in.  When doing a specific task for my job, a 7th tab opens up.  It has always opened all the way to the right.  When I’m done reading the information it gives me, I just quickly “x” it out to return working.  Yesterday I noticed that this 7th tab was not opening up all the way to the right.  It was opening in the next-to-last position to the right.  This might not seem like a problem, but when I go to close it, I’m so used to x-ing out the one to the far right, that I’ve been x-ing out a tab that I need.

So the question: How can I get the new tab that opens to appear all the way on the right again? Again, this is not adding a new tab. If I add a new tab to search for something, it does open all the way to the right.
