I have the FlashGot extension installed in Firefox. When I middle click on a link and then accidentally move the mouse before releasing the button, FlashGot captures the link and the file gets downloaded in my download manager. I don't want this behavior, how can I disable it?


Actually, it's not “middle click + drag”, it's “middle click + drag downwards”.

To disable it, set flashgot.gesture and flashgot.gesture.feedback to false in about:config.
