Why doesn't command+click work correctly on Pinterest?

Stop taking me to new tabs! Pinterest, why are you the only site that overrides my Firefox preferences?

So, yes, I agree that Pinterest is a satan whose power comes from elaborate manicures and bizarre casserole recipes, and it's been sent here to distract us from the real issues of the day. But it is driving me crazy for a different reason:
It's screwing with my tabs!
As per my Firefox preferences, in all other circumstances a cmd+click (on a Mac) opens a new tab but does not take me to that tab. This is what I like. But on Pinterest, this doesn't work when clicking on a particular pin and attempting to go to the image's original, source site — I do get taken to the new tab immediately. Like all of us, I take my tab hygiene incredibly seriously, and this is really driving me up a (perfectly decorated) wall.
Is there a stronger preference I can set somewhere? (Again, my FF preferences *are* set.) Is there a Firefox add-on or greasemonkey script I can use? Or maybe a Pinterest preference I don't know about?
I am so old my first draft of this question used the phrase "open apple+click." OPEN APPLE.
