Dear,
Since new version 28.5.0, CTRL + click on link doesn't open a new tab.

I face no problem with PM 28.5.0 x64: Ctrl + click on a link opens it in a new tab as expected.
If it does not work with your browser, probably, some tab-related add-on has assigned this shortcut key for another command.

If you have Tab Mix Plus, see if disabling that fixes it.

Thank for your feedback.
Indeed, I updated TABMix Plus to the last version 0.5.7.0 April 11, 2019 and it works now

Extending this question:
Some websites hijack Ctrl-Click, so that doing so does not open links in new tabs… extremely annoying.

Would anyone know a method to disable that, by any chance?

I'm assuming this would be a script solution (GreaseMonkey, TamperMonkey). For instance, to prevent websites from disabling keyboard shortcuts, I came across this script.

Thanks!

I have never come upon a website that would hijack the Ctrl+click shortcut. Could you give a reference to such a site, please? Just curious.
