The inital reason to creating this addon, was so i could "CTRL+Click" on one of my bookmark folders which contain (quite a few) bookmarks and the containing bookmarks would open without the browser freezing or becoming unresponsive, because i am sure my PC is a actually a potato in disguise. Since i could not find any other addon which at the time seemed to be able to do this, i created this addon to fill the gap.
