Default tabs for JIRA view screen

Is it possible to set a default Details tab for a view screen?

When navigating between issues, the last viewed tab is remembered.

Is there an option/preference to default a tab for the View Screen?

I don't think we have option to set default Screen tab in JIRA. You are right First tab is the only default tab.
