When you open a Bookmark in a new tab by selecting Bookmarks -> Right Click -> Open in a New Tab, Firefox goes to the newly opened bookmark tab automatically instead of staying on the current tab and opening the newly opened bookmark tab.  This is opposite of what it does when you right click on a link inside a web-page and select "Open in a New Tab".

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the Bookmarks tab
2. Right Click on a Bookmark and select "Open in a New Tab"
3. Notice how you go to the recently opened bookmark tab instead of staying on the current tab


Expected Results:  
You should stay on the same tab you where on before you opened the bookmark in a new tab.
