I can't find a way to do a common activity (opening links
in a new page) under Firefox.  I'm happy to use tabs for
situations where I want to switch back and forth between
pages.  However, I often need to look at multiple pages
at the same time; tabs aren't the right answer for this.

Ideally, I should be able to specify one of three ways
for the browser to handle a link:

  *  replace the current page in the current window
     (a simple click does this)

  *  add a new tab, showing the new page (command-click
     does this)

  *  bring up the new page in a new window (I can't find
     a way to do this)


Reproducible: Always
Shift click opens in a new window on windows. Also right click and "Open in New Window".
I've just been informed that shift-click opens a link in a new window on Mac's as well.
