It is possible to switch immediately to the new tab when I open a link in a new tab

When I open a link in a new tab, Firefox does not switches to the new tab!

Is there an option like desktop firefox? tools -> options -> tabs -> "switch to new tab immediately"

Do these prefs exist on the about:config page?

  • browser.tabs.loadInBackground [false]
  • browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground [false]

I have added the two prefs (since they do not exists) but it not works. Thanks anyway

Note:

If I choose "open in a new tab" from the bookmark tab it works.... It does not work when opening a new tab from a web page lik

The browser is pretty much unusable without this. I added those two fields to the about:config page and I can't get the new tab to be switched to when opening from a link OR when opening from a bookmark.

Hi!

To change this, go to a new tab, enter 'about:config' into the address bar and locate 'browser.tabs.loadInBackground'.

Then change this to 'false' and it will work! Smiley Happy

Gosu,

As already stated, it doesn't work. I have filed a bug in bugzilla.

Yeah, that doesn't work.
