Bug Description

In the files menu if the user selects the option to open a folder in a new tab it seems obvious to me that the user wants to immediately start working in that folder. However the new folder is opened behind the current folder, so the user must explicitly select the new folder to work on. I cannot think of any logical situation in which after opening a new folder the user would prefer to continue working in whatever random folder currently happens to be on top. I cannot find any tweak that controls this behavior.
