Which version of Firefox are you running?

I've just tried this in v 3.6 and it opens the tab immediately to the right of the current one. It seems to be the default behaviour now, I can't find an option in the user interface that controls it.

Both right click & "Open Link in New Tab" and middle click work this way.

I haven't got any tab related extensions installed at the moment.

It's certainly worth keeping your browser (what ever browser you use) up to date with the latest version - if nothing else you'll be kept as secure as is possible from vulnerabilities in the code.

I get the same behaviour as Chris in FF 3.6, also without any tab-related extensions. Can you confirm what version you are using? –  Bonus Feb 2 '10 at 9:45

In FF3.6, one can change this using about:config and browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent –  Arjan Feb 2 '10 at 13:17

I do not believe it is, but if you're using FF without extensions, you're missing the major draw.

Tab Mix Plus can do this, along with a lot more.
