Firefox 3.6 changes where new tabs are put

I make use of the middle mouse button to open new tabs off to the side/background for later reading.

Especially useful with reading forums...I can go down the list of updated threads and middle click the new messages on each thread of interest off to a new tab. Especially useful on forums that clear the new message marker based on time rather than when you have actually gotten around to reading those messages.

But, Firefox 3.6 changed where new tabs go, and I couldn't find in the preferences where to change it back. Finally, found that I had to go into about:config and change this:

browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent

to false.

Wonder what other 'bug' Firefox 3.6 has waiting for me.... :**:

Discussing this behavior change with a colleague it occurred to me that the new behavior might be more to mike liking in certain situations of those where I use it a lot. But, it is not what I expect as norm, and there’s no easy way to toggle the behavior.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
