I would like a New Tab button, instead of having to Click the + , or w/o having to Right Click. Looking for the instructions brings up about a thousand 'Topics'?

You have to click on the "+" to open a new tab in current Browser or right click link and open in new Tab. Beyond this functions that would be the use of Addons that add "Tab" functions - if they have them to do what your asking for.

There are two prefs on the about:config page that determine where a new tab is opened:
