it makes no sense to specify to open in new tab and be taken to the blank loading page..same for open new window a nightly last week had it right and someone took it out please put that back in

Please always add the build ID in a bug report: For the TABS: Do you have the pref "Edit\preferences\Navigator\Tabbed Browsing\Load Links in the background" enabled ? Open in a new window will always put the window in front but you can move it in the background. Or do you mean the recent Focus regression : bug 134317 ?
