I have tried in default magento and got the solution for this.

Path: app/design/frontend/rwd/default/layout/customer.xml

<reference name="left_first">
            <block type="customer/account_navigation" name="customer_account_navigation" before="-" template="customer/account/navigation.phtml">

            <action method="addLink" translate="label" module="customer"><name>account</name><path>customer/account/</path><label>Account Dashboard</label></action>
            <action method="addLink" translate="label" module="sales"><name>orders</name><path>sales/order/history/</path><label>My Orders</label></action>

            <action method="addLink" translate="label" module="sales"><name>xxxx</name><path>xxx/yyyyy/zzzzz/</path><label>My Products List</label></action>

            <action method="addLink" translate="label" module="wishlist" ifconfig="wishlist/general/active"><name>wishlist</name><path>wishlist/</path><label>My Wishlist</label></action>

            <action method="addLink" translate="label" module="downloadable"><name>downloadable_products</name><path>downloadable/customer/products</path><label>My Downloadable Products</label></action>

            <action method="addLink" translate="label" module="customer"><name>account_edit</name><path>customer/account/edit/</path><label>Account Information</label></action>

            <action method="addLink" translate="label" module="customer"><name>address_book</name><path>customer/address/</path><label>Address Book</label></action>

                <action method="addLink" translate="label" module="newsletter"><name>newsletter</name><path>newsletter/manage/</path><label>Newsletter Subscriptions</label></action>

            <action method="addLink" translate="label" module="review"><name>reviews</name><path>review/customer</path><label>My Product Reviews</label></action>

Note: go to respected layout file(.xml) from your module and find for **reference name="customer_account_navigation"** copy the action section and paste one by one in the customer.xml as shown above format. Thanks

  • Please check the reference name "left_first" in your customer.XML and place the above code. Apr 15, 2017 at 17:28
  • HI, I didn't find any left_first in my customer.XML, even I searched in base, default, and my theme. Only 'left' is available for the customer.XML I already sent my customer.xml file in the previous comment please check that one and please suggest me
