1. Make Firefox lose focus to another application.
2. Hover over a bookmarks toolbar item
     Result: hover effect (indicating click-through)
3. Middle-click
     Result: nothing happens
     Expected: open a in a new tab, and maybe focus the window

The patch in bug 562998 fixes this for me, but it doesn't fix bug 460782.

Looks like bug 562998 fixed this.
