Steps to reproduce:

Looking for something at google - clicking on a link (page starts to load..) while the page loads I clicked on another link (rightclick -> open in new tab).

Actual results:

Nothing happened - firefox loaded the page I selected first and no new tab was opened.

Expected results:

The page should be opened and loaded. (Ctrl + T) works.

Is it reproducible?
If yes, could you test with a clean profile, please.

Yes this is reproducible, even with a clean profile.
I noticed that this only happens on the google search results page, not on other pages.

Where do you click on the 2nd link? Is it a Google result or link from the 2nd tab loading?

I tried on my side on a Google result page and I can open many tabs with middle click or the context menu.

Maybe I explained it too bad:
1) I go on
2) I search for "Some foobar test"
3) I click on search result #1 (normal leftclick)
4) While search result #1 page loads (the google search results page is still visible) i click on search result #2 (rightclick -> open in new tab)
5) nothing happens

But Ctrl + Leftclick works (opens new tab while loading page)

Step 3) open the result in the current tab on my side, leftclik doesnt open any tab, it just load the link in the current tab.
