Chrome extension, setting, or something wanted so bookmarks always open in a new tab on left-click

I've started a new job that requires me to be bouncing from page to page, app to app... every few seconds and no matter how much I concentrate I keep forgetting when rushing and accidentally left-clicking a bookmark and losing everything I've just wrote or been working on because a lot of the sites/pages don't save drafts. (Inb4, I know about ctrl-click and middle-click, I do normally do this but sometimes while rushing I forget and lose work/time)

 

I really need either an extension, a setting, or anything that will force bookmarks to always open in a new tab on left-click? Even if it's something I have to manually edit and add to every bookmark individually, I'll do it.

Is there anything?

This would be the easiest fix and then use slight caution or have your works getting saved after each edit with it being done in Google Docs since anything changed is saved in its cloud. I swear by docs especially if I'm writing or doing late night edits.

Yes, I have checked and there's nothing. I figured there must be an extension surely but I can't find one 😕

Thanks but that isn't possible. As I said, sometimes while in a rush with a client on the phone going nuts because XYZ I'm balancing 20 tabs and apps at once, soon or later I will click a bookmark, forget to middle-click and... Bam!... work on that page is gone.

Kind of a dumb question, but could you utilize another monitor and work on primary and keep your tabs on the secondary or vice versa? or another low impact browser so you're not conflicting with other tabs unless you use the bookmarks for quicker functions.

Try hiding bookmarks so that they appear only on a blank page. You can quickly open a new page by ctrl+t and then use your mouse to open a bookmark. If you want to be a power user use middle click and learn keyboard shortcuts.
