Some menu items that spawn new tabs support the modifiers Ctrl/Shift and middle clicking in order to determine tab focus. Prime examples would be the History and Bookmarks menus. Search <Engine> for <String> on the context menu does not.

I've done this in my Context Search extension and can probably write a patch for this if anyone is willing to cover QA duties.
I'm not sure if this is desired. Do other context menu items support these?

Not sure if it's definitive or not (it was the only thing I could find where it made any sense...) but 'View Background Image' allows Ctrl/Shift and middle clicking.
View Image and View Background Image both support the modifier. Jesse pushed for a bunch of these changes a good while back to address the inconsistencies with these menu items and bookmarks, etc.

Ctrl- and shift-click seem to work these days, but middle-click still doesn't.
