Hi there, i was wondering weather theres a way to make multiple new tabs (opened with middle mouse click/right click open new tab) open from newest left to right instead of right to left? Im pretty sure it used to work like this but it hasnt been for awhile now.

Heres what i mean Current: |Tab|Tab|Active Tab|First New Tab|Second New Tab|Third New|Tab|

What i want: |Tab|Tab|Active Tab|Third New Tab|Second New Tab|First New Tab|Tab|

Does setting both these prefs to false do what you want ?

  • browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent false
  • browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".

browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent Changes new tabs opened with CTRL+T to open next to the current tab intead of at the far right of the tab list browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent Makes new tabs opened with middle click appear at the far right of the tab list

Looked through the rest of browser.tabs. with the search function and it diddn't seem like there was anything there, might be missing something though.
