Open New Tabs Directly to the RIght of the Current Tab
Windows 10, newest version of Mozilla Firefox.
When I right-click and open a new tab from a website, it will open at the end of similar websites.
For example, we use Canvas for school and I might have a Canvas webpage open, and say LinkedIn open to the right. If I open another Canvas tab from the original, it will go to the right of the original canvas, and to the left of the LinkedIn page. If I right-click and open a third canvas tab from the original, it will open to the right of both of the current canvas tabs, but to the left of the LinkedIn.
I want to open the new tab immediately to the right of the current tab. I swear within the last year that is how it would normally operate, and I see the value in the way it operates now, but I personally want to change it.

You can look at these prefs on the about:config page and set them to suit your needs.
You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".
I think if you are on Page A and you open links to Pages B, C, and D without changing tabs, Firefox lines them up in that order moving to the right (A, B, C, D).
I think you would need an add-on to change it so every new tab opens immediately adjacent to the tab it opened from, in other words, in A, D, C, B order.
I created a very simple new extension for this, but it probably won't be approved until tomorrow. You can find the source code on Github, and there's a link to the Add-ons site that should work at some point tomorrow.
