How can I click on a bookmark and have it open a new page? When I click a bookmark it always opens right in the sidebar, all my bookmarks disappear and I am left with two seperate pages?

I keep my bookmarks open at all times in the sidebar. If I want to go to a site, say Google, I must do a right click on the bookmark and then click on "Open In A New Tab" then the google page opens in a new tab. I want to skip the second click. I want to be able to simply left click the google booknark in the sidebar and have google open in a new tab. the way things are now, when I simply do a left click on the google bookmark the new google tab opens in tne sidebar itself. My bookmarks disappear from the sidebar and the google page is opened in the sidebar. So at this point I have two active page open at the same time. Is there a way to simply left click the bookmark in the sidebar and have the bookmark open as a regular page? Please pardon my clumsiness as I have only today used FireFox for the first time.
