    This should be redunkulously easy, but I've been sifting through addons and googling for an hour, and am pulling my hair out.

    I have 5 websites. I want to be able, with one click, to open them all in tabs. In Safari, I would put them all in a folder, then check the "Auto-Click" checkbox. But in FF, I'm stumped. Obviously I can choose "Open All in Tabs," but that's extra work and clutter. I'll never be visiting these URL's independent of each other. I simply want to click one item in my bookmarks toolbar (or anywhere else, as long as it's just one click) and have all 5 URLs open.

    There's gotta be a way to do this...?

    Firefox - "Auto-click" to open multiple tabs.

    I'm answering 9 months late so I hope you found the answer, Cleo, but I hope it helps someone at some point (and I haven't given back much of anything for too long), so…

    On Mac OS/X just hold down the Command key while you click on the folder in the bookmarks bar which should contain the set of URLs you want to open in tabs. This works with a single click from bookmarks displayed in the (All-in-one) sidebar too. (It doesn't work from the bookmarks menu, probably due to the way menus are handled in OS X.)

    [For Windows it's probably done the same using one of the modifier keys--my guess is the CNTL key, maybe ALT, but I'm not ruining my night revving up Windows just to find out!]
