When I middle-click a link in Firefox, I would like the new tab to open adjacent to my current tab, not all the way at the end of the tab bar. How can I make this happen in Firefox 7?

There is an option you can set. Go to the address bar, and type about:config

After you click Ok on the warranty warning, do a search for this config setting, double click it to say true.

Huh. For some reason this was set to the non-default of False in my browser. I'm pretty sure I never set it that way. Setting it to true fixed my problem. Thanks! – Ryan Thompson Oct 13 '11 at 21:26
