1. Visit xkcd.com, open the quickfind bar with /, and type "blag". The relevant link will receive a focus outline.
2. Press Ctrl+Return.
-> the link should open in a new tab; instead it opens in the same tab.

There is a suspicious comment in relevant parts of the code that says "// Todo: Handle ctrl click".

Confirmed by going to reddit.com. Pressing '/', typing "comments" to focus on one of the links, and pressing ctrl-enter.

If I use the quickfind the focus on a link, but press ESC to dismiss the quickfind toolbar, ctrl-enter opens a new tab as expected.

This is a regression, possibly linked to two changes. Here are the Firefox nightly builds with those changes:
* 2013-09-14 -- quickfind doesn't focus on links. Have to press ESC to get focus.
same behavior up to:
* 2013-09-27 -- quickfind focuses on links, but ctrl-enter opens in the same tab instead of a new one.
