Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Like many other Firefox features, the tabs opening after current option can be changed with a little searching through about:config. For the Firefox novice, though, this addon probably would be very useful:)

No need for an extension! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There is no need for an extension! All you have to do is:
- Type about:config in the address bar. Then, if needed click the “I’ll be careful, I promise!” button.
- Next, in the filter box – type in: tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent

- Right-click that about:config entry, and select “Toggle”
