Back to Firefox after a few years away, I like the feature Firefox suggest, however, it opens up and switches to the site selected when selected, (middle button), is there a way to open these in the background. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hmm, do you mean on the address bar drop-down, the entries below the Firefox Suggest label (history, bookmark, contextual suggestion)? I see what you mean.

What do you think about Shift+middle-click? It's not mouse-only, but it's all I've got.

All my search items automatically switch to the new tab instead of loading in background.

Ctrl + Shift then click solves this, but anyway to do it just with mouse ?
