This is really a pain in the ass. Somehow the assigned click-handler also grabs the CTRL-Click events but removes the modifier key.

I still have no clue how to fix this.

...just de-assign the click handler for links. Is jquery used? I begin to like this.

tino:Not sure...

I'll take a look at this...

pixtur:yeah, it's jquery.

The code can be found in js/listFunctions.js:

The normal clicks are already de-assigned for normal links.

    * prevent normal links from being overwritten by row toggling
    $('table.list a').click
            document.location.href= this.href;
            return false

tino:It looks like this...

I played a bit and this is my first result

from js/listFunctions.js

    $('table.list a').click(function(e) {
        if( e.ctrlKey )
        	document.location.href = gBrowser.addTab(this.href);
        	return false;
            document.location.href= this.href;
            return false;

one comment to this:
i think this works for me, but not for everyone.

if i understand it right, this emulates firefox standard behabiour.
but ctrl-click in firefox is configurable (open new tab in foreground or in background).

the "real" solution might be to switch off streber click handling for links completely and let firefox do the job.

Could you elaborate a bit more on this? How can this be done...

xl:let the browser do its work

what i wanted to say:
we should not build a complex click handler but pass on to the browser what is to the browser. (what ctrl-click does is a matter of browser config, not of our javascript!)

i looked a bit into js/listFunctions.js.
the "trouble" code you cited in yeah, it's jquery., what is it good for anyway?
it is commented "prevent normal links from being overwritten by row toggling", but it looks like row toggling is done server side, not javascript.

so the solution woud be to just delete cited code.
