I want to open a bookmarked site from my bookmarks toolbar in Firefox, I have to open it in the same tab, when single-clicking the bookmark. Is it possible to change the settings so that I every time I single-click on a bookmark it opens up in a new tab, instead of the current one? I know I can open up the right-click menu and access the new tab option from there but there has to be an option to just single-click and open the webpage in a new tab.

Unfortunately there isn't such an option as far as I'm aware.

Checking Tools--> Options--> Tabs, it seems no such option exists.

CTRL + Left Click

I did not verify this:
Middle Click Open in New Tab:

As an added bookmark-specific tip, you can set them to open in the background when you middle click them (instead of having them steal your focus). Go to the URL about:config, filter for browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground and double click it, setting it to "true" ("false" is the default). Left clicking a bookmark will still open it in the current view, middle clicking will now open it in an unfocused tab in the background.
