tab order

Asked by Matthew Boevink on 2013-10-01

A question about our tab handling.

If we have two tabs A and B. Viewing tab A I click a link which opens in tab C (Which opens by default next to A). If I close C should the active tab be changed to A or B? Currently it move upwards and goes to B which I believe to be in error? Yes no?

Midori doesn't track the tab usage, but the history-list extensions does.
However, moving downwards isn't right for all cases either -> tabs A, B, C - C ist active, change to B, close B

So we agree that the tab should return to the tab that opened it if available?

Dunno if this should be a default feature, but it's already implemented in history list.

I would put this under "would be nice to have always", maybe after release we can see how much effort it would be to move to core.

Matthew, do you mind filing a feature request?

Can you help with this problem?
