Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a5pre) Gecko/20070531 Minefield/3.0a5pre ID:2007053104 [cairo]

repro:
Open FF
middleclick on an item on the Bookmarks Toolbar to open in a background tab

result:
the tab is opened and the page is loaded, so far so good.

but..
there is no indication you hit the "button" on the Bookmarks Toolbar
The button goes in raised position when you put the pointer on it, on middleclick the position remains the same.

expected:
A change of the bookmark-button appearance, background-color, depressed state or whatever would be nice.

the same visual effect misses for middleclick on the back/forward buttons.
Bug 451915 - move Firefox/Places bugs to Firefox/Bookmarks and History. Remove all bugspam from this move by filtering for the string "places-to-b-and-h".

In Thunderbird 3.0b, you do that as follows:
Tools | Message Filters
Make sure the correct account is selected. Click "New"
Conditions: Body   contains   places-to-b-and-h
Change the action to "Delete Message".
Select "Manually Run" from the dropdown at the top.
Click OK.

Select the filter in the list, make sure "Inbox" is selected at the bottom, and click "Run Now". This should delete all the bugspam. You can then delete the filter.
