As I don't use the contect menu to open new mails, I'd like to use middle-click to open a new tab as in Fx.
I don't think that many users use the right-click menu to open mails. And as there aren't any options to change the behaviour of tabs other than width and heigth, I guess, not many users use tabs in Tb. I've only stumbled upon this feature by accident as it's really hidden when you don't often use the context menu.

Reproducible: Always

Same issue for me. Not being able to easily open folders or messages in new tabs by middle clicking basically renders the tabbed interface useless.

confirm, please fix CTRL-ENTER too, which is the keyboard equivalent to this

Here's an implementation of the feature.  Fairly simple and straightforward.
