Here what happens:

I forgot to add:

I see some conundrums:-
Shouldn't focus stay on the job-at-hand, which is the opening of the
browser to load the linked-page in a browser-background-tab, rather than
staying-focussed on a different-component of the suite (Mail/News)?
Wouldn't many opened-tabs running in the background, count against its use?
Those preferences are browser-component-settings, so middle-click
calls/opens the (browser-component) main-window to-load the
(browser-component) tab-page in-the-background.
"maintaining the existing-window's focus" function, needs a
separate-setting, but I could-not easily-locate a preference or
"about:config" (focus) setting for this feature. Can anyone in the group
illuminate on that preference?
I would like to know the answer, because I do see a usability-case for
this (Right now, I'm busy editing a web-page, reading-mail, or editing
my address-book, and I may forget the link-locations but later, I
do-want to read these [tabbed] link-pages in my browser). Barry.
