On OS X, middle click and command-click do not open bookmarks in a new tab

On OS X, middle clicking or Cmd-clicking on a link, or on a bookmark on the toolbar, opens that link in a new tab. However, middle clicking or Cmd-clicking on a bookmark in the Bookmarks menu opens the link in the current tab.

In the case of middle clicking, I am using an external mouse. Cmd-click fails to open a new tab from links in the Bookmarks menu both when using an external mouse, as well as when I use my MacBook trackpad.
