Description

7 years ago
Currently, the history menu allows me to go back to a history item in
the current tab.  Instead, it should have an option like there is in
the bookmarks menus of "Open a new tab" (possibly open in a new window
too, though i dont really care about that).
Severity: normal → enhancement
middle-click? ctrl+click?
Do you mean the History menu (like Firefox > History) or the session history menu (the one that appears on back/forward buttons)?

These are supposed to work? or are these suggestions? (they don't seem to wfm)

I was refering to session history, but both would be nice
The History menu should work with middle-click or ctrl+click. I just tried right clicking the back forward and then middle clicking an entry and a new tab was opened as well.
Which platform are you on? which version of the browser?

Sorry, at least ctrl+click works.  Must have been PEBCAK. Thanks!
