- Reproducible on: Firefox 46.0a1 (2016-01-07) and Firefox 45.0a2 (2016-01-07) using Windows 10 64-bit, Mac 10.10.5 and Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit.
I think that this is using the standard <label class="text-link" href="..."> functionality.

The <handler> at http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/content/widgets/text.xml#375 specifically only handles button="0". Neil, who is the right person to make a decision about whether text-link should handle middle-click identically to left-click?

Seems like having adding support for middle-click here would be ok.

The patch in bug 1237945 also fixes this.
Depends on: 1237945
oops - too quick - I also opened bug 1246082 for the fact that text-link elts don't work with middle-click.
Fixed by bug 1237945.
