hi, When I open a link through right click menu "Open Link in New Tab",this feature is fine.but when I just open link by left click,this feature isn't work as I expect. so maybe there are some understanding gap of that feature.Anyway the FF is a good product.
I am having the same problem with Firefox in OSX, right after upgrading to the new version (18.104.22.168). I previously had it set not to switch to new tabs on open, but after installing new version, it began to switch to new tabs on open (using the open apple + t command). I went to preferences > tabs but the box was unchecked. I checked it and tried opening a new tab, and it switched to the new tab. Then I went back to preferences > tabs and unchecked the box and tried it again. FF continues to switch to new tabs when I use the open apple + t command. If I rc and select open link in new tab, it does not switch.
