How to open a new tab after current browsing session.

Posted

I used to use new tab king, and when I opened a new tab, it would always open the new tab to the very right of my session, out of the way and not somewhere randomly in the middle. However, I wanted my restored windows to open where I had closed them in my session. I have since changed to use new tab plus instead, and it worked that same way before, but since I updated to firefox 26, it seems to have reset that option (as well as others), it opens in the middle of the session now instead of the end.

I'm not sure what you mean by the middle of the session.

Do you mean the middle of the tab bar in the current window? There is a setting for whether to open a link in a new tab adjacent to the page where you clicked the link or always at the end of the tab bar. If that's what you mean, here's how you can switch it:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste tabs and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent preference to switch it from true to false.

But I'm not sure that's what you meant... also, extensions may override Firefox's built-in behaviors with their own tab settings.

I'm not sure what you mean by the middle of the session.

Do you mean the middle of the tab bar in the current window? There is a setting for whether to open a link in a new tab adjacent to the page where you clicked the link or always at the end of the tab bar. If that's what you mean, here's how you can switch it:
