Make new tabs from links retain history from parent tab

I'm trying to resurrect a feature from the good old Tab Utilities days. Is there any addon or about:config setting that will let new tabs from links retain the history from the parent tab?

Thanks in advance...

I'm not sure exactly what you mean. Let's say I'm in tab 1 and it has some "Back button" history. Then I open a link in the page in tab 1 in new tab 2. You want tab 2 to have the same Back button history as if you had opened the link in tab 1?

I can't think of a way to do that, exactly. I think the closest thing would be to duplicate tab 1 to a new tab 2 before opening the link (for example, right-click the tab for tab 1 on the tab bar, then click Duplicate Tab).
