Chosen solution

You Will have to hold down the Alt key and press Enter to make the link open in a new tab without using an extension. By default links always open in the same tab.

You can search the Add-ons website for an extension if you want to change this default behavior.

The add-on "New Tab From Location Bar" fixed the problem!
