    Tab behaviour in latest Firefox

    My Firefox has just updated itself to 3.6.7, and the update seems to have changed the behaviour of new tabs being opened.

    They used to appear on the end of the list of tabs - now they appear next to the parent tab, like Windows Explorer does.

    I have to use Explorer at work and for some reason that I can't explain, I prefer the Firefox way of having them appear at the end of the list.

    Is there any way to change it back? No obvious settings present themselves in the Preferences menu.

    *DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK*

    type in new opened blank Firefox tab about:config

    ...in the search area, type in tab

    Don't quote me but the line you're looking for should say 'browser.tabs.InsertRelatedAfterCurrent'...

    Highlight, right-click (what-ever) and select 'Toggle'.. It should set it to 'True' which I think is what you're looking for. Using Chrome right now, or I'd test it on mine...

    If you type rm -Rf / as root at command line you will get herpes... then die... (okay, it'll erase ALL your data)
