Tap To Tab 0.3.1

Summary:
Double click (double tap) on a link to open it in a new Tab. Designed for tablets and laptop trackpads, which don't have a right click mouse button.

Link:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tap-to-tab/

Description:

Designed specifically for touch-screen tablets and laptops with trackpads (which don't have a right-click mouse button), you can now double-click on a link to open it in a new background tab.

It works similar to the "open link in new tab" option in the popup menu when you right-click on a link, but this method is faster, because right-clicking is a slow process without an external mouse.

You can configure in the settings window to:
* Focus opened tab; or
* Open new tab in background

meanwhile installed in my second profile where it is more usable than "right click to open new tab", no conflict between my userscript (violentmonkey)

Don't be misled by its name; double clicking with a mouse works equally well. This is a very good replacement for https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... blclicker/ which I understand from its developer won't be migrated to WebExtensions.

The only thing I can add, is that it would be even better if the double click speed could be made adjustable, since I find it a little fast, but that is in no way intended as a criticism!

Thanks for a really useful add-on.:D

Hi. Is it possible to get an option to open links in background in default order? Normally, without this extension new links open in background tabs like this by pressing ctrl+click:

[a][1][2][3][b][c]

And if I open the links with Tap to Tab the order is like this:

[a][3][2][1][b][c]

[a][b][c] are the current opened tabs with [a] being the current tab and [1] [2] [3] are the new tabs opened in that order.

Thanks for the addon.
