Right Click - Open in new tab - next to current (or New Tab Button how I hate thee?)



  • Tabs are driving me nuts ...

    eg, other browsers, when I right click a URL to get the option to "open in new tab" the tab appears directly next to the one I'm on. This is expected.

    With Vivaldi, this seems to have been muddied (soiled) with the New Tab Button.

    In the TABS section we have the "open tab" option with Next to current, which works fine for me .. but when I go to the top of the browser, and manually select the New Tab button, my expectation is that will start a new tab at the end of all the tabs and continue there.

    What the open tab options do however, is open that new tab (from the new tab button) next to my currently active tab which is not what I want.

    When I change the option for "New Tab" to be at the end of the tabs, which is where I want the New Tab Button to open a tab .. but when I right click on a link, and open in new tab, it then goes to the end of the tabs!

    am I making sense?

    Maybe this is a "New Tab Button" option that needs to be added, so that we can control how the NewTab Button is supposed to place its new tabs vs the right click open in new tab, right-click context menu



  • I have set "New Tab Position": "After Related Rab"
    That opens right-click>"open in new tab" links next to the tab and the new tab (+) button opens tabs at the end for me.

    THANK YOU!! that's working for me now too!! Fingers crossed across restarts 🙂

    😞 short lived .. no the problem with this option is the "related tabs" so if I've already done a couple "open in new tab" clicks, the next time I do the open in new tab, it remembers the group of related tabs .. and in-place opens at the end of those related tabs.

    That's why "next to active" I thought was correct .. because I want "open in new tab" to open directly next to where I am .. but still want the New Tab button to operate independently ...

    In your case .. the "new tab" opens at the end because its not related to your current/active tab its a "new tab unrelated" (?) if that makes sense.

    back to the drawing board 😞 Thank you still though!



  • @TG2 Darn, I thought it would work for you too.
    Well, that leaves only one option:
