Ensure mdl click + shift opens messages in a bg tab if loadInBackground preference is false to follow Firefox behaviour

expected behaviour:

  • when loadInBackground pref is true:mdl click opens a new tab in background
  • when loadInBackground pref is true: shift + mdl click opens a new tab in foreground
  • when loadInBackground pref is false: mdl click opens a new tab in foreground
  • when loadInBackground pref is false: shift + mdl click opens a new tab in background.

actual behaviour:

  • when loadInBackground pref is true:mdl click opens a new tab in background
  • when loadInBackground pref is true: shift + mdl click opens a new tab in foreground
  • when loadInBackground pref is false: mdl click opens a new tab in foreground
  • when loadInBackground pref is changed to false: shift + mdl click also opens a new tab in foreground. We lose the ability open a new tab on bg.

Summary: Ensure mdl click + shift opens messages in a bg tab if loadInBackground preference is false → Ensure middle click + shift opens messages in a background tab if loadInBackground preference is false
