    Default Firefox 3.6.8 new tab position. (solved)

    I was going to post a question, but I (think?) I have found the solution (For once!)

    Firefox for opensuse has auto updated itself to 3.6.8... OK, but now if I click a link, it opens in a new tab NEXT TO THE CURRENTLY OPEN ONE. I am used to the new tab opening as the last of the open tabs, ie on the far right. Nothing refers to this in the edit>preferences AFAICS.
    However in about:config, there is a key I can set to make it behave like it used to:

    browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent, set this to FALSE and Bob's your Unc


    HTH somone else

    Yes, this is a feature. The reason it's nice is that it keeps things that
    are related together; for example if you have tabs on topics A, B, and C,
    opening anew tab from tab on topic A will get a new tab near that one so
    things are kept together.

    With that said, it's different so at first I've known a couple people who
    thought it was dumb (including myself) but it's grown on my to the point
    that now I can't stand older versions.

    Thanks for posting your thoughts/observations/workaround.

    Good luck.
