***Overview Description: It seems the behavior has recently changed in the Manage Bookmarks window such that dbl-clicked bookmarks now load into a current window instead of a new one. One must now guess that metakey+dblclick will open it in a new window. If that is going to be the case I think it only appropriate that the first choice in the context menu be 'Open in New Window' just like in a browser context menu. I would think there is no need for plain old 'open' in the context menu anymore since you can get that with a double-click now - just like there is no 'open' in a browser link context menu ***Steps to Reproduce: 1) Open Manage bookmarks. 2) Right-click on a bookmark ***Actual Results: 'Open' is the first choice in the context menu. Choosing it loads in the current window. ***Expected Results: 'Open in New Window' should be the first choice instead and it should do just that. ***Build Info: 2001030810 builds ***Additional Information: You can do this and bug 71051 at the same time :-) I'm going to be filing the exact same bug for history.
alecf who owns the History bug for this has noted that we'll still need the 'open' option. Some writings by mpt have led me to agree as well. So i'm modifying this bug to reflect that requirement. As a matter of fact, for consistency, open should be the default selection when the context menu opens up.
Open seems to open in a new window; it's the first and default choice. Can this be closed?
Double-clicking also opens in a new window. Sounds good?
Claudius please update the status of this, thanks. still worksforme
no, nothing's good. I don't know who or why these things keep changing but nothing is consistent. Taking some cues the browser context menu behavior (and behavior that has not changed) here's what should happen: Dbl-click on a bookmark finds the topmost nav window and loads it there (history does this correctly) and this has always been the convention. Metakey+dbl-click should open a new window Context menu should then contain 'Open in New Window' Although earlier I said differently, things I'm currently not sure about: 1. Should context menu contain 'Open' 2. If (1) should 'Open In New Window' be first and default? the history vrsion of this bug is bug 71401

OK I understand what you mean now. Current status: Double-click: new window Accel + Double-click: new window Right-click + open: new window Indeed this is inconsistent with the history window. Sorry for the misunderstanding. I was misled by the summary because it led me to think that for you it was opening in the same window. Which is obviously what should happen, but doesn't happen.
claudius: based on the summaries, this is a dup of bug 60581
