keep focus on current tab

How do you keep the focus on the current tab while clicking a link which opens in a new tab. The focus always seems to go to that new tab.

I think IE 8.0 does what I want by default.
Again, Just want to keep the focus on the current page even if I click a link to open another tab while Im still on that original page.

If there is a simple setting to check in the preferences, I cant find it

Open links in new (background) tabs with MiddleClick:

That was easy. Thanks for pointing it out.

here is another solution (PERMANENT)

There are some missyncronization between k-meleon.exe and prefs by default (afaik, bug).

The advice in the linked message solves this, but there wouldn't be a GUI way to temporarily get it back in foreground - only through about:config again.
