This is a frustration, since the user invokes a command specifying a new tab, and then has to search for the tab that just opened. The new tab should be in the foreground, appearing when the command is first issued. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.right click on any link in any web page 2.select open as a new tab 3. Actual Results: the new tab will open in the background Expected Results: the new tab should have opened as the foreground
Tools - Options - Advanced - Tabbed browsing - check "select new tabs opened from links" "The UI for new tabs in the foreground is too hidden and incomprehensible" would be a valid bug (though probably a duplicate), but you would have to come up with a better phrase, which is really hard to do.
