New tabs vs closing tabs


I find it annoying the way browser tabs are opened and closed from other sites. If I have a link in an email, the new tab opens on the right of that tab as expected. In the same thought, if I were closing that tab, my expectation would be for it to close and open the tab on the left. What actually happens is that it closes and opens the tab on the right. Most other browser operate by activating the tab to the left of the closing tab.


Hi @felted911,

You can change the behavior in Preferences > Tabs > When closing an active tab. I think last viewed tab or parent tab will work in your case.

Hope that can help,
Thank you,


I have the same issue. I’ve tried both “last viewed tab” and “parent tab” - in both cases, the tab to the right of the one I was just viewing is displayed.
