CTRL+left click is not working for me, so I cannot open the link in a new tab by using this shortcut!

When I press ctrl+left click on a link, nothing happens. The only way to open a link in a new tab is by right clicking it, which is not very convenient

I had this problem as well. I narrowed it down to a conflict between two of my addons. In my case, Tab Mix Plus v0.3.8.6 and GreaseMonkey v0.9.10. I then checked the sites for these two addons, and found out it is a known issue and will be fixed in GreaseMonkey v0.9.11 (which is apparently in beta testing at the moment).

For those of you having this issue, check to see if your addons may be causing it.

In my case it was the greasemonkey addon. Once i've desable it, everything went right. Thanks for that hint!
