Yes, you can change the default tab position in Mozilla Firefox by following these steps:

  1. Open Mozilla Firefox and type "about:config" in the address bar.
  2. Press Enter or Return on your keyboard.
  3. You will see a warning message stating, "This might void your warranty!" Click on the "I accept the risk!" button.
  4. A list of preferences will appear. In the search bar, type "browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent".
  5. Double-click on the "browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent" preference to change its value.
  6. By default, the value is set to "true," which means new tabs will open next to the active tab. To change the default tab position, double-click on the preference and set its value to "false".
  7. After changing the value, close the about:config tab. The next time you open a new tab in Firefox, it will open at the far right instead of next to the active tab.


Note: Keep in mind that modifying advanced settings in Firefox can potentially affect browser behavior and stability. Exercise caution and make sure you are comfortable with the changes you are making.
