When I click the + icon to open a new tab, how do I make it be the same web page as the current one I am clicking from?

For example, if I am on a recipe web page and I click on the + icon to open a new tab so that I can look at the reviews of that recipe while keeping the recipe web page open as well, the new tab comes up as a blank search page right now. I would like the new tab to come up as the recipe page where I was when I clicked the + to make a new tab. That way I don't have to go looking for the recipe webpage in the new tab and then to the reviews...I would like to be already on the same recipe web page in the new tab and then just click on the reviews. I hope I explained this clearly. Thank you!

The most straightforward seems to be: hold Ctrl and Left-Click on the Reload button. You could also Middle-click on the Reload button (e.g. "click" with the mouse wheel, if you have a wheel-mouse.) The thread above also has some other options.

Edit: you could also hold Ctrl and drag a tab next to itself to clone it, another suggestion from the above thread.
