Opening a new tab from GMAIL automatically switches to the new tab, despite preferences for the opposite

I would like to know if it's just a Gmail thing, and if there are ways or add-ons that can prevent switching to the new tabs once I click on a link in Gmail.

I think this is a gmail thing, esp since it's bypassing your preferences. I'm not sure of any addons that can restrict it, but someone else might have one.
