If you are on a page in Firefox and open a link in a new tab (Ctrl-Click on Windows/Linux, -click on a Mac), it opens in sequence next to the tab you are launching from.

Is it possible to make all "open in new tab" actions open at the end of the tab bar, like in Opera or Chrome?

  • @Hello71 ... obviously you do not have the dyslexics keyboard I do :) .. thanks for the spot :) – warren Sep 7 '10 at 12:45
  • As far as I know, Chrome doesn't have that, to begin with. – Eugene Jul 3 '13 at 8:46
  • @Eugene - Chrome doesn't have which? – warren Jul 3 '13 at 14:19
  • @warren doesn't have native support for option to open new tab at the end. – Eugene Jul 3 '13 at 20:01

In Firefox type about:config in the address bar and hit enter. Click past the warning message.

In the filter field type "insertRelated".

Double click the resulting browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent line to toggle it to False.

  • awesome - I was guessing somewhere in about:config but had no idea where :) – warren Sep 7 '10 at 12:45

Tab Mix Plus addon can help you do this. Just navigate to Tab Mix Plus Options and under Events > Tab Opening tab, and clear the checkboxes near

  • Open new tabs next to current one


  • Open other tabs next to current one.
