Steps to reproduce:

My sync is setup on multiple computers/tablets.  

On system A:
 * create a bunch of different tabs on one system
 * force a sync.  

On desktop system B:
* Force a sync
* Choose Firefox button -> History -> Tabs from other computers

Firefox gives a nice list of other tabs (excellent).  
Open more than one them using either double-click or a middle button clicks



Actual results:

Clicking on another tab (with either double or middle button) will open a new tab at the end of the tab list and switch to it.  In order to open another tab, I need to switch back to the "Tabs From Other Computers" page.


Expected results:

It should have opened that new tab, in the background, and left me to click more items.
In the new Synced Tabs sidebar, you can right-click a synced tab to open in the background, or right-click a device to open all its tabs. The old about:sync-tabs was removed in bug 1365273.
