How can I get Firefox 8 to open new tabs at the end?

Posted

Hi,

I know there's a way to make Firefox open new tabs at the end instead of this really annoying forced 'open new tabs next to open tab behaviour'. Can anyone help me find it?

Thanks!

Evan

You can 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.

  • Use the Filter bar at to top of the about:config page to locate a preference more easily.
  • Preferences that have been modified show as bold (user set).
  • Preferences can be reset to the default via the right-click context menu if they are user set
  • Preferences can be changed via the right-click context menu: Modify (String or Integer) or Toggle (Boolean)
