How to stay in search pop-up when I click a search result by middle mouse button?
It hard to explain what I mean so I recorded video, link is below. I want Firefox to behaves the same as Chrome. So as you can see, when I use address field for quick search then pop-up appears with search results. And I click on these search results with middle mouse button. But on Chrome it works normally and on Firefox not. I am redirected to just opened tab what is really annoying. I must go back, input the same if I want open several result. How to change this behaviour to achieve the same what I have in Chrome?
Also it’s exactly the same when it comes to bookmarked pages in a folder on the bookmark bar. When we click folder with bookmarks we have dropdown menu with bookmarked web pages from this folder. And when I click something with middle mouse button then page opens in new tab but this dropdown menu disappears, and again I must click folder when I want open more sites. In chrome it doesn’t. How to set it the same for this?

I'm not aware of a way to do this with items in the location bar drop-down list. For bookmarks there is a pref on about:config to keep the drop-down list open.
- about:config => browser.bookmarks.openInTabClosesMenu => false
You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. On the warning page, you can click "Accept the Risk and Continue" to open about:config.
Thanks, your solution works for bookmarks and location -> bar -> drop-down list too.
I really do believe that the same can be done for search popup somehow?
