How do I set FF to always open links in a background tab? (as if ctrl-left click is always on)
I used to have FF set to to this, but since upgrading to a new laptop, I cannot figure out *how* I set it up to open all links as background tabs. I do have TabMix installed, and obv. I can ctrl-click, but I want that to be the default setting.
In Tools -> Options - Tabs, there is a checkbox for "When I open a new tab, switch to it immediately". Uncheck that box and restart your browser.Read this answer in context 👍 0

Thanks, that was the first thing I did, never worked as I thought it would. I ended up using about:config and finding "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground," switched that to true and things are back to normal.
