What happens when you middle-click a hyperlink in a regular web page? If instead of opening a new tab, the URL from the clipboard is loaded, this bug is likely WONTFIX.
This works exactly as expected on hyperlinks in a regular web page, (same as other platforms/middlemouse.contentLoadURL=false i.e. open in a new tab, no clipboard action) otherwise you would have every Linux user yelling at you.
This bug is specific to the session restore XUL page.
Right, browser.js's contentAreaClick will have to be taught about either XUL (trees) in general or about:sessionrestore's <xul:tree id="tabList"> in particular.
Confirmed with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.3a1pre) Gecko/20100202 Minefield/3.7a1pre
This still happens with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:2.0b8pre) Gecko/20101208 Firefox/4.0b8pre
We should probably get this fixed for Firefox 4.0. Adding a blocking? nomination.
Not a dupe, but probably related:
I would blocking- this if I could. Not something I would hold shipping for. That said it might be easy to fix.
Simon: Not sure how closely you're reading bugmail, but couldn't we just stop propagation if we process the middle click? A quick test seems like it's doing the right thing

Seems to work without having to special case this particular tree
Narrow, not holding the release for this.
