Bugbug thinks this bug should belong to this component, but please revert this change in case of error.

Component: Untriaged → Bookmarks & History

Could you please be more specific about which bookmarks menu you are using, since we have more than one.
Are you using 78 ESR?
When the problem happens, do you see any errors reported in the Browser Console?

Sorry, I refer to the main menu bar (top of screen in OS X), cmd-clicking bookmmarks here ought to open a new tab.

I am currently on 78 ESR (I downgraded OS X to 10.11 to for blood preasure reasons) however the same behaviour occurred before in 83 on macOS 10.15.

There is no console error.

I believe this is a widget problem; the same issue exists for the history menu.

I was planning to look into this.

This also affects native context menus. For example, with browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled and widget.macos.native-context-menus set to true, Cmd-clicking the Reload item in the page context menu doesn't open a new tab.
