It definitely has something to do with the fuel flow from the front tank. It may be the fuel pump again, the older F-150's with two tanks soemtimes have problems with the fuel pumps because of the extra pull from two tanks, and the switching between them.
You could check the fuel filter (assuming there are two fuel filters, one for each tank)...but otherwise it sounds like a fuel pump problem, or possibly an obstruction in the switching mechanism for the two tanks, or an obstruction in the line itself. Hope that helps!

the problem is the fuel pump inside the front tank is defective, it is not a fuel filter, the fuel from both tanks fuel pumps runs through the same filter

There is no selector valve on a 1995 ford f150 300 engine. The selector switch on the dash sends power to the pump in the selected tank. The pump then sends fuel to the engine. If engine won't run on the selected switch, the pump in that tank needs replaced.
