Open new tabs on the right in Firefox 3.6

Mozilla have changed the way that new tabs operate in Firefox 3.6. When opening a new tab from a link on a web-page, the new version of Firefox will place it to the right of the current tab, rather than at the far right of the list as it did in previous versions.

To revert to the old functionality type about:config in the address bar and then click the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button if it appears.

In the filter type tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent and then right-click on the entry and click "Toggle".

Thank you all for your kind words. This 'innovation' in Firefox annoyed me enough to find a fix for it. I figured that it would be annoying others too.

Since the basic purpose of the internet is to share the knowledge and to communicate with each other, I can say that blogs are playing one of the important role in sharing the knowledge and to communicate with each other.
