It is possible to switch immediately to the new tab when I open a link in a new tab
When I open a link in a new tab, Firefox does not switches to the new tab!
Is there an option like desktop firefox? tools -> options -> tabs -> "switch to new tab immediately"

Do these prefs exist on the about:config page?
- browser.tabs.loadInBackground [false]
- browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground [false]

If I choose "open in a new tab" from the bookmark tab it works.... It does not work when opening a new tab from a web page lik
The browser is pretty much unusable without this. I added those two fields to the about:config page and I can't get the new tab to be switched to when opening from a link OR when opening from a bookmark.
To change this, go to a new tab, enter 'about:config' into the address bar and locate 'browser.tabs.loadInBackground'.
Then change this to 'false' and it will work! :)
As already stated, it doesn't work. I have filed a bug in bugzilla.
Yeah, that doesn't work.
