One aspect that has to be mentioned is that this only works if the bookmark is opened in a new tab. I use the middle mouse button all the time for a while to open links in a new tab. It takes some time to get used to it but it works really well after a week.
Update: The Firefox add-on has not been updated for the past four years which also meant that it was not compatible anymore with newer versions of the Firefox web browser. The developer only recently updated the extension to be compatible with newer versions of the Internet browser. We have taken the liberty to review the latest version of the extension that is compatible with all recent versions of Firefox. Just follow the link here to the Configure permissions for Firefox bookmarks update and check out what's new.
