Why did my tabs start opening right to left instead of left to right?

My tabs on the tab bar always opened from left to right. Then, they simply began opening right to left, so I have to go to the far right to view the first tab that I opened.

I have not been able to discover a way to change the sequence back to left to right.

Set the pref browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent to false on the about:config page.

To open the about:config page, type about:config in the location (address) bar and press the "Enter" key, just like you type the url of a website to open a website.
If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access that page.

But how can we keep them in the same "group"? Changing browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent just adds it to the far right. I still want them grouped by website.
