Tim, how important is this regression? Thanks!
Hey Mike, As someone without a middle mouse button, i dunno! I'm marking it 'uiwanted' and we will get an answer soon, though it's safe to say we can't get anything done for 62.
I can confirm the issue but it does not seem important enough to address. The functionality is correct: the search keyword you click is added in the address bar. The glitch is only visual and clicking on a topsite with the mouse wheels seems like an accidental action not an intended one.
