when opening link in new tab, the new tabbed window doesn't get focus, that is,
the focus stays with the current page, which doesn't seem to be the desired
behavior.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
just go to any page and find a html link. right-click mouse and choose "open in
new tab".

Found the option under:

edit->preferences->Advanced > Select new tabs opened by links

Now it works as expected after enabling above option, which I think should be
enabled by default.

Thanks.
