I just updated to Firefox 3.6, yay! It took me approx. 30 seconds before I wanted to stab myself because they’ve made the default tab opening behaviour so that when you middle click a link it opens in the tab next to the tab you’re viewing, rather than at the end of the tab bar.
This probably pleases a lot of people.. I know people with extensions to do that. But it drives me crazy. I know my new tabs are supposed to be at the end, because all my tabs are in a certain order, and most of them I never close…
Anyway, if you want your Firefox 3.6 tab opening behaviour to be the same as Firefox 3.5, do this:
- Type about:config in the address bar
- Close the warning about screwing up your install
- Search for “browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent”
- Double click it to change it to “false”.
Voila! Your tabs are back to normal. No need to even restart.
