I am very happy with the upgraded Firefox library. It works great except for one feature. Maybe there is a setting for it that I have missed.

When I click on an item in my library to open it, it opens it over top of the right-most tab that I have open. That means I always have to be careful to have a blank tab open, otherwise I lose the last item I was viewing. Is there a setting, or can you add a setting, to have the library open links in a new tab, or if one prefers in the existing tab? I want to be able to open in new tabs.

You can open in tabs by middle-clicking with the mouse or holding down the Ctrl key while left-clicking.

In the case of bookmarks, you can always open them in tabs by visiting about:config in the address bar and changing browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs to true. Unfortunately there is no such setting for history.

Solution worked great. Yes, there should be the same config option to change how History opens tabs. Thank you.
