How To Automatically Switch To New Tab When Opening Links In Mozilla Firefox

When opening links in new tabs when using Mozilla Firefox, the new tab is not switched to by default.

Here is how to make sure that whenever a link is opened in a new tab, Firefox switches to that tab immediately :

1. Select Tools > Options from Firefox (Edit > Preferences for Linux version of Firefox).

2. Navigate to “Tabs” section and enable check mark next to option “When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately.”

Switch to new tab automatically when using Firefox

3. Click Ok to save the changes.

From now, Firefox will switch to new tab when a link is opened in a tab.

Happy browsing.
