I'm using monterey on 14 inch M1 pro macbook pro from 2021. In safari, I can hold command and physically click my trackpad (i.e. press it down) and it opens links in new window, which is the intended behavior.
However, I also have "tap to click" turned on in trackpad settings. I expect holding command and tapping once to also open link in new window. However, doing so does nothing about 90% of the time.
However, if I hold command and DOUBLE tap, then it opens in new window, as if I had single physical-clicked. Rarely, <10% of the time, command double-tap actually opens TWO new taps.
I remember finding a thread in official Apple forums where someone else had the exact same issue, but no response except a standard (try these steps to troubleshoot). Anyone else have the same issue?
