First of all, neither browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent=true nor Tab Mix Plus option helps. I just have a page containing a href="..." target="_blank" (or without target="_blank") links. I ctrl-click them, but each opened tab just appends far to the right so it may be not even visible! How do I force each tab (opened by ctrl-clicking a link) to open just next to the active tab?

Try Tab Utilities instead. Generally Tab Mix Plus would work.

Linking to the suggestions and describing what they do would be helpful. – Raystafarian Mar 20 '14 at 13:37
I've got it: Tab Utilities Options --> Tabs --> Tab Opening --> Open new tabs next to current tab which are from: select "All" + uncheck "Keep the original order for continuous background tabs" – lyrically wicked Apr 3 '14 at 3:28

Type about:config in Firefox location bar. Search for value browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent and set the value to true and it should work.
