In e10s if one has bookmarked something so that it is opened in sidebar, 
ctrl+click in that sidebar doesn't open new tabs as it does in non-e10s.

STR:
load https://platform.html5.org/
bookmark it and in the bookmark properties flag the "load in sidebar"
Click the bookmark
ctrl+click some of the link in the page now loaded to sidebar.

expected, new tab loaded, but nothing actually happens.

The context menu, in sidebar loaded pages, is significantly broken on all platforms:

Win 7, Nightly 47.0a1,  	20160223030304 - FAIL
Mac 10.11, Nightly 47.0a1, 20160223030304 - FAIL
Unbuntu 14.04, Nightly 47.0a1, 20160223030304 - FAIL

It's not just the open in new tab context menu item that is broken. Only a few of the context menu items actually work as expected, as follows:
 
Open link in New Tab - does nothing 
Open link in New Window - does nothing
Open link in New Private Window - does nothing
---------------------------------
Bookmark This Link - opens bookmarking dialog as expected
Save Link As... - does nothing
Save Link to Pocket - does nothing
Copy Link Location - puts location in clipboard as expected
Search Yahoo for "<link title>" - opens new tab with search results of link title as expected
---------------------------------
Inspect element - does nothing
