User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.4) Gecko/2008102920 Firefox/3.0.4

I have permissions.default.subdocument set to 3 to block external frames from being loaded.
And when I click a link to an external site on a framed page, the link doesn't work. Wheel-clicking the link opens the linked page in a new tab, though.
A good example is the Google image search. When I search something on Google image search and click a result, Google shows the link to the image and the page on the upper frame and a blank frame below that because the page is external and therefore blocked. Strange thing is that when I click a link on the upper frame to the image itself or to the page, nothing happens. 
Is this an expected behavior? Middle-clicking the link opens the link in a new tab as expected.
