From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:0.9.5+) Gecko/20011026 BuildID: 2001102605 It would appear that my middle mouse button does not work to open new links. The middle button works in other applications, such as XFree86 (XonX). My mouse is does go through a PS/2->USB adapter, but this shouldn't matter at all. I'd like to be able to open a new tab with the middle button. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Plug in 3 button mouse 2. Click Link Actual Results: absolutely nothing. Expected Results: should have opened the link in a new window, or in my configuration, a new tab.
You likely need to set user_pref("middlemouse.openNewWindow", true); That preference defaults to true on Unix and false on MacOS, with OSX being treated as MacOS. Please set that pref and comment in this bug on the results.
Summary: Middle mouse button does not work → Middle mouse button does not work
I added user_pref("middlemouse.openNewWindow", true); to my prefs.js, and it didn't work. Just to avoid any confusion with custom settings, I decided to nuke my ~/Library/Mozilla, and get a nice clean profile. What's interesting, is that a clean Mozilla still will open new links with Command-Click (the universal MacOS way to emulate middle button I guess -- it works in my xterm). Even when I added the middlemouse option to my fresh Mozilla profile, middle clicking did not work. Hope this is of some help.
Thomas, thanks for checking that. Looks like an issue with mouse events on OSX... *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 106215 ***
