In SeaMonkey, when you open a link in a new tab via de context menu, that tab is
bringed to the front. In Firebird, it opens as a background one. It would be
good to have the possibility to set in both browsers how do you want them to
open, if you want them to open in background or a la seamonkey. Preferentially,
with an UI in Navigator-->Tabbed Browsing...

In Firebird, this is in Options, under Advanced, Browsing, and it's called "Open
links in background"
