This has become more of an issue since I got a Magic Mouse and have middle-click mapped as 3-finger touch. It's always annoyed me that Firefox even does this--is there a way to prevent firefox from closing tabs when you middle-click them?

Middle click? Who needs more then one button on a Mac? – Josh K Feb 25 '10 at 0:20

As there doesn't appear to be a setting in about:config, the only way i know how to do it is using the addon Tab Mix Plus: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1122

that looks to be uber-overkill for the one thing I want to do, but thanks for the suggestion. – Brade Feb 26 '10 at 19:56

This is really more of a superuser question. Take a look at something like this or search on that site.
