Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030723 Mozilla Firebird/0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030723 Mozilla Firebird/0.6

Selecting a bookmark in the bookmarks sidebar does not have a keyboard shortcut
to open bookmark in new tab.  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.

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.

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.
