User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:7.0.1) Gecko/20110928 SeaMonkey/2.4.1 Build ID: 20110928161145 Steps to reproduce: I left-clicked an item on the historylist Actual results: The active tab became replaced by the history item. Expected results: A new tab should have been opened. At least there should be an option in the Tab-Browsing-Preferences to do so.
No reason for a left-click to do anything but what it does IMO. So the only merit for this bug would be as a RFE. So, if there were to exist a preference such as: browser.history.opentabforleftclick
Sounds like extension fodder to me.
@comment#1: I agree that a pref would help, maybe a checkbox in the tab-browsing preferences could be useful, too. @comment#2: I don't think that this should be handled in an extension, I've got the choice whether bookmarks should replace the existing tabs or not, so why shouldn't I have the choice at this point. Actually, I wrote a blogpost in a textfield, and was not amused at all when that happened.(In reply to Philip Chee from comment #2)
What about middle-click?

As far as I can tell, a middle-click of an item on the History list did at the time, & does still, open the item in a new tab, so no reason for "enhancement".
