How do I make Mozilla Firefox open new tabs (using the command Ctrl+T) at the near left end of the tab strip?
There is no way to do it without an add-on.
I installed Tab Mix Plus 0.4.1.0 and this solved the problem by adding the desired functionality.
Edit: After installing Tab Mix PLus 0.4.1.0, in order to open a new tab right after the tab you are currently in, you have to:
1. right-click on the current tab 2. choose the first option - "New Tab (After This Tab)"
I'm fairly certain that it is not possible. The behavior of Ctrl + T is to open a new tab in the same way that the new tab button opens a new tab. It automatically defaults to the right side because of how the space is occupied. The left side is occupied so it starts to fill in the right. We also read left to right. Other than some crazy macro that creates the new tab and then shifts it to the left I don't think there is a simple way to do this. Why are you trying to do this?
