... nor does middle clicking on a tab cause it to close. i had this problem a few years ago and cannot remember how I fixed it ( unless it was to toggle about.config

browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick=true to false and back to true again) That did not work this time around.

Problem arose on my Win10 machine when left on overnight for Win upgrade, though the mouse driver seems to be a generic MS one from 2006. Have tried loading Logitech Options and selecting the required radio button for middle click/new tab but no luck.

Linux, pasting URL into main browser window no longer works

Hasn't been working for a while. But still works on some earlier installs that I still have installed on the same machine, so I presume it is not an issue with XFCE 4.12 or Xorg 1:7.7+19 or Debian-stretch.

If I double-left-click highlight a URL in, say, a txt document, then I can simply middle-click to paste that URL elsewhere, such as an xterm, or emacs window. This does not require Ctrl-C Ctrl-V. If I am running an older version of FF, say FF53, a middle-click paste anywhere in the browser window will get FF to load the URL in that window.

But this no longer works in recent FF, such as FF62. To accomplish it requires first clearing the URL bar (double-left click to highlight, then backspace-key to delete) then re-highlighting the desired URL (double left-click), then middle-clicking in the empty URL bar.

This pasting feature was working by default as recently as FF53, but it stopped working somewhere between 53 and 58.

How can I get it working again?

Hello! I noticed that desktop Firefox 62.0 (some previous releases same) does not close the tab by first time middle mouse click. Is often work with second click. This is very noticeable when you use alternately google chrome. Unexpected behavior is quite annoying: You quickly brought the mouse to close opened tab, the click did not worked and you have to be distracted again, on a seemingly elementary operation like closing browser tab..

Best Regards, Donald
