Steps to reproduce:

If you are possessing hardware (mouse) with a scroll wheel which also has option for scrolling left & right (e.g. Lenovo Bluetooth Lasermouse) and you are opening a link in a new tab with the middle click, the link will be opend several times (1-4 times) if you are also activating the right/left scroll click of the mouse!
It has nothing to do with addons (i tested it with a fresh installed new system as well). The Problem stops, if you deactivate the function for the side-scrolling of the mouse, but then I cant scroll sidewards with my mousewheel any more!


Actual results:

tab opened several times


Expected results:

the link should have just opened once, instead of 1-4 times, even when i press the sidewards scrolling button at the same time as well!
Hmm I get the same behaviour but I'd always assumed that the problem was bounce on my mouse.
