When middle-mouse clicking a link in a tab, the tab opens at the end of the list of tabs. When I then close the tab using the MMB again, I go to the second-last tab, not back to where I was! Here is an example to illustrace (/ tab \ specifies the active tab) CURRENT BEHAVIOUR: / Mozilla / Mozillazine \ Slashdot \ I then MMB-click a link in mozillazine to quickly check another site: / Mozilla / Mozillazine / Slashdot / Other Site \ Then I MMB-click the other site tab to close it: / Mozilla / Mozillazine / Slashdot \ As you can see, I'm on the slashdot tab now! If you browse with lots of tabs like I do, you quickly get lost and can't find your old tab. EXPECTED BEHAVIOUR: / Mozilla / Mozillazine \ Slashdot \ I then MMB-click a link in mozillazine to quickly check another site: / Mozilla / Mozillazine / Other Site \ Slashdot \ Then I MMB-click the other site tab to close it: / Mozilla / Mozillazine \ Slashdot \ As you can see, I'm where I was before. Opening the tab in the spot just to the right ensures that I end up back when closing it.

Any hints on where to start to implement this myself? If it's only XUL/js, it might be something I could take a look at.
There's too much debate about where should be placed new tabs in bug 105722 "Closing tabs should return to 'parent' tab." which focus the real intention of this bug, to return to the previous tab. dupping *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 105722 ***
