    I'm using Safari 5.1 on a MacBook running v10.6.8. Suddenly, tabs started opening next to the active tab instead of the end where I want them. How can I make this stop and go back to the way it was? :confused:

    I want to know that too

    I would like to know exactly the same thing, is there some preference setting or something ?

    You don't want to change this :). This is by far the awesomest feature of Safari 5.1. It makes "threaded" browsing much easier, that is, allowing you to quickly open tabs for a bunch of interesting topics and then individually look into each topic, following any associated links from each topic before going on to the next topic. I love it.

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    Get the extension OpenAtEnd.

    Edit: Contrary to the user above me, I also hated the change made in 5.1. Glad this guy made the extension, since Apple didn’t bother to give us a choice.

    Thanks Aggie. The extension makes it work like it should and can be disabled if I ever want to go back. (But why I would is a mystery!)

    Like most people, I am extremely glad Apple made this change in Safari 5.1 so that it works like it should.

    It was one of the most frustrating things about Safari compared to Chrome. When I'm browsing a site and want to explorer deeper without losing my place on the site, now I can without jumping all the way to the end of my open tabs and losing track of where the original tab was.

    I am really liking 5.1 compared to previous versions of Safari.
