I believe this because I have chosen 'middle-click opens new tab' in the preferences (albeit the browser settings). As there is an option to 'open link in a new tab' in the right-click context menu anyway, wouldn't be easy enough to have middle-clicking perform this (if it were chosen in browser prefs)? Basically, whatever is chosen regarding tabbed browsing in the main Mozilla prefs should be replicated in a chatzilla window (unless there is a very very good reason for not replicating - I am aware of none). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Middle Click any link in Chatzilla 0.9.54 Actual Results: Makes the link clicked active, but doesn't do anything with the link. Expected Results: A tab should've been opened (or a new browser window if one wasn't present) and the location of the URL should be displayed.
Confirming, it seems valid and I found no dup. Adjusting summary. I'll look into this; if there is no patch within a week I've given up.
metz2000 and all: Ok, I think this bug report actually covers two issues: respecting the Browser prefs and doing something on middle-click. So instead of hijacking it for my plans, I'll properly split it. I just filed bug 231621 for adding a middle-click action to chatzilla, Patch will be posted soon. I heard Silver would like such a patch. This bug here is now about Chatzilla using the Browser prefs for middle-click, ctrl-click etc. What most people do not know is that chatzilla has its own such prefs: http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/extensions/irc/xul/content/prefs.js#97 there is a new prefs window coming that displays those prefs to the user. I heard Chatzilla people have yet to decide if these prefs should still stay in chatzilla or if they might be removed in favor of the browser prefs. Maybe a possible standalone chatzilla should also be taken into account, here... Maybe this bug will therefore become a wontfix - or maybe you, metz2000, consider it sufficient what bug 231621 does and close this bug here. It's yours, so...
Just installed ChatZilla 0.9.59 and this has been resolved. Thanks for your work on this, much appreciated.
