Firefox: It was around here! Please refresh my memory! I want to do that again!

Hello, people,

I discovered that something very good I did in one FF profile I use , but not in the other. (I have more than 2 profiles, and usually there is more than one opened at the same time) I am almost 100% sure that the key to the behaviour I want is changing some setting (possibly just one, but not sure) in about:config.

The behaviour I want is: when I click in a link holding the ctrl key, the new tab will *not* get focus immediately (that is FF's default). I may continue to read the page where the link is while the new tab loads or I am not satisfied with what I read. To focus the new tab is a simple "ctrl+tab" ahead (as if it was focused just before the current tab got focus, which is great for me).

What setting(s) do I change to get that behaviour, in that other profile? I could not find where that was by the starred posts I have here (but maybe I did not star it, my mistake, forgot, ...). May you refresh my memory or (simply) tell me how to do that?

These about:config changes + consequences are so hard to find! I will write all I like and ever use in a personal collection (stored in a simple text file in some draft email) from now on. This will be the first one there!

    disconsider that part of it, or ask it to be
    moved to another group. If someone replied
    here, my opinion is that there is no problem
    with that - a problem is something that is
    really rare, IMO.
