Open new firefox tabs by dragging toolbar link?

before 3.0 i could grab a link in my bookmarks toolbar and drag it to open in a new tab. now it opens in the present tab. i am too used to this to try it the other way (right click> open in new tab).

is there anyway turn the old way back on?

I don’t know about your way specifically, but if you add a “new tab” button to your toolbar (I do this by default) you can drag and drop a link on to the new tab button to do what you want.

I just middle-click the links. Yeah, I feel the left-click behaviour is broken. My Tabs preferences says “New pages should be opened in: a new tab”. What the hell is that supposed to mean, if not JUST WHAT IT FUCKING LITERALLY SAYS?
