how to open link in history in a new tab (instead of active tab)?

more options

I open 2 tab (website A & website B), then accidentally close tab B. When I open History in the menu and click B from the list, it will open in current active tab (website A). Is there any setting to make it open in a new tab? Yes, I know that I can open a new tab and then open B from History (also open a new tab from History in sidebar). But if it's possible, I think it's more convenient.

Oh, speaking of History, when I choose 'Show All History', it open in a pop up window. Considering that 'Preferences' open in new tab, isn't it more consistent if 'Show All History' open in a new tab too? Or is there any option/setting for this?

Thank you.

If you open browsing history in the Sidebar using { Ctrl + H } a middle-click or {Ctrl + click } will open a page from history in a new tab.

There is a hidden pref to open a bookmark in a new tab all the time, but not one for browsing history.
