The right-click menu gives this option, but ctrl-enter (which works on links in a page) and alt-enter (which works in the location bar or search bar) opens the bookmark in the current tab. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit a web page and add bookmark (say, by typing ctrl-D). 2. Open the bookmarks toolbar (ctrl-b) and give focus to the list of bookmarks. (With the mouse, tab, or shift-tab). 3. Select any bookmark (using the arrow keys) 4. Type ctrl-enter or alt-enter. Actual Results: Bookmark opens in current tab of current window. Expected Results: Either ctrl-tab or alt-tab (or both, I suppose) should make bookmark open page in a new tab of the current window.

taking QA contact, sorry about the bugspam
A middle-click on a bookmark of the bookmarks sidebar should also open the link in a new tab (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113)
Ctrl-Click and middle-click both WFM for opening in new tabs on WinXP.
Can't confirm this: Ctrl-Click and middle-click both open the bookmark in the current tab instead of opening a new one. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113
Sorry, I didn't notice that this bug is for Firefox. Ignore my previous post.
WFM (now) in Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a2) Gecko/20040525 Firefox/0.8. Probably fixed when updated from later Mozilla main. Mark as FIXED?
Also WFM on XP, marking as such, please reopen if you can reproduce this with a nightly build and a fresh profile.
WFM with ctrl+click but not with ctrl+enter. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a2) Gecko/20040622 Firefox/0.8.0+ Reopening.
This is not a feature request, it's an inconsistencey that we should fix.
sorry for bugspam, long-overdue mass reassign of ancient QA contact bugs, filter on "beltznerLovesGoats" to get rid of this mass change
ctrl+enter works, alt+enter not using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9b4pre) Gecko/2008020708 Firefox/18.104.22.168 ID:2008020708
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20100503 Firefox/3.6.4 ctrl+enter works, alt+enter doesn't.
Indeed, Ctrl/Cmd+Enter works now. Alt+Enter for this wouldn't make sense in a keyboard context.
