How can I open a new tab not right next to the one I open from but next to the last?

Before I switched to the current version of Firefox, the new tab that I would open, was opening right after the last open tab previously opened. Now if I have 4 tabs open and I open a new tab from inside the first one, the new tab opens as number 2 tab. Is there an option that toggles the opening sequence ?

A couple of methods, first use the New Tabs at the End add-on. The second method involves changing a hidden preference.

  1. Type about:config into the location bar and press enter
  2. Accept the warning message that appears, you will be taken to a list of preferences
  3. In the filter box type related
  4. Double-click on the preference browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent to change its value to false
