Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

When opening a new tab (either through use of right-clicking a link and
selecting OPEN IN NEW TAB or through highlighting some text on a page and right
clicking to select SEARCH WEB FOR...) the new tab displays underneath any
currently opened tabs, instead of on top, like it used to do with the last
version prior to Firefox.  It's just not as convenient to then have to select
the tab one has just opened to actually read it.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Firefox to any webpage.
2. Rt click and link, then select OPEN IN NEW TAB
3. 

Actual Results:  
The new tab will be open, but hidden under the current one.

Expected Results:  
New tab should open on top of current (or previously) open tabs.

That takes care of it.  Thank you.  I don't like "new tabs opened from links"
phrasing...not clear.  Should be "new tabs opened as current" or similar to be
less confusing.  But thank you Jose Jeria.
