Links from Gmail steal focus despite preference settings
When I browse eTOCS from scientific journals in my Gmail inbox, I would like to queue up a bunch of promising sounding articles in tabs behind the focused tab (gmail), thus completely finishing my perusal of the table of contents before checking out the articles that interested me. Under Preferences->General-> Tabs I have "open links in tabs instead of new windows" checked and "When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately" unchecked. Despite this, every time I click a link in gmail, it creates a new tab and switches to that tab, so I have to repeatedly switch back to the gmail tab.

Check the preferences in about:config in accordance with this answer: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1328185#answer-1396449
Open a new tab, enter about:config in the url bar, accept the risk and find those preferences.
