This could probably be branched into three different bugs, but we'll leave it in one root bug for now.

1. CTRL/Command + Click the Latest Headlines bookmark

Windows: Article list appears and disappears quickly.  Multiple Tab warning appears and works as expected.

Mac: Article list appears on top of Multiple Tab warning.  Can select a single article, but the Multiple Tab warning remains.  Cannot Cancel the Multiple Tab warning unless you click away from the Article list first.

Linux: Article list appears on top of the Multiple Tab warning.  Cannot select story from list.  Multiple Tab warning keeps focus until acted upon even though it is behind the Article list.

CTRL/Command + Click should assume I want to open in multiple tabs and warn me.  Do not list the Articles in the feed.  If I want to see the feed I'll cancel the warning and do a normal click.  At the very least, the experience should be the same across all platforms.

Screenshot of Mac to come shortly.

Attached image Screenshot: Mac
I can't seem to get a screenshot of Windows and Linux.  Windows the feed disappears almost immediately.  Linux looks almost identical to Mac except stories are not selectable.
