When middle mouse button is used to open a link in a new tab, the window is blocked by the pop up blocker

Reported by, Jan 10

Issue description

UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/71.0.3578.98 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Use MMB to open a link
2. link is blocked
3. RMB and open as new tab 

What is the expected behavior?
A new tab is opened without being considered as a pop up

What went wrong?
The MMB and LMB+Ctrl both trigger the popup blocker when opening a link as a new tab

Did this work before? Yes
