browser.bookmarks.openInTabClosesMenu=false does not apply to the synced tabs menu
Up until mid-November 2022 approxmately, I was able to open multiple synced tabs by holding down the Ctrl key. The synced tabs would then open in new tabs in the background, while the menu would remain open.
Since an update, the behaviour has changed, and opening a synced tab now automatically closes the menu, which is most annoying, as when I change computers, I most often have several synced tabs to reopen, not just one.
browser.bookmarks.openInTabClosesMenu=false does not apply to the synced tabs menu, and I was not able to find any other option that would help.
browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground=true does not help either.
What am I missing? As far as I can remember, it worked out of the box until a few weeks ago! (the menu would not close upon opening a synced tab in a new tab, holding down the Ctrl key). The issue appeared after a Firefox update on my 4 devices.
Many thanks in advance!

You can use the sidebar to open more than one synced tab.
Note that there is "Open All in Tabs" in the right-click context menu of a device in the sidebar.
Thank you @cor-el, it kinda works, but I would prefer that the tabs would open in the background from the sidebar (not to mention I have to open and close the sidebar, but this is a minor annoyance).
Pretty sure what I mention could be achieved (fixing the syned tabs menu), what's more I feel like it is a regression, as it worked fine several weeks ago.
Thanks for the sidebar tip though, I'll try and get it to open tabs in the background.
