Hi, how can i force clicking my links using RMB and a context menu option "Open in a new Window" to load in the background instead of losing focus to the current window?

for e.x. ive got 4 links bookmarked and i have to RMB click on each on1 by one then back to the main page holding links and do the same for the 2nd then for the 3rd and so on :(:(:(:(:(

we must have some setting similar to : browser.tabs.loadInBackground;true

smth like browser.windows.loadInBackground;true or whatever !

please help or force a suggestion to implement such feature in firefox, thx in advance (sry 4 bad english)

There was an add-on that would open new Tabs in the background. Never heard of one opening new windows like that.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.

too bad im not a moderator to clear that useless answer^, the key was "Never heard of one opening new windows like that." if so, would be better to not post random stuff. (no need to answer that!)

to the case: if some1 has the power to push somehow this feature to some new versions of firefox - please help,

if nope, let the issue remain opened w/o spam etc. in case some OP ppl has the full answer. thx in adv, hope for the best, no offence.
