In wayland-based linux, how do I completely disable the middle mouse button in firefox?

more options

I'm using Fedora 32 and I have the middle mouse button disabled in the gnome tweak tool. But for whatever reason, Firefox seems to ignore this. What I really want is for Firefox to stop closing tabs when I have the mouse cursor hovered over a tab and I touch the wrong part (the middle) of the touch pad. This is just a huge usability problem. I'm killing tabs all the time, sometimes with forms and email messages in them. Help?

I fixed this with `click-method="fingers"` in gnome tweak tool.
