When opening multiple tabs, the previous version of Firefox indicated the point of origin, i.e. when you middle-clicked an entry to open it in a new tab, that entry would be highlighted by a small box around the entry. This does not happen anymore, which means one has to remember which entry has been middle-clicked last in a long list of entries which I wish to open all in separate tabs. That's very inconvenient.

Reproducible: Always
I'm the link last middle-clicked is meant to have a focus ring around it after you switch back to it from another tab, but not until then.
