On twitter, if i middle mouse click on a tweet, it open in a new tab and switch immediately to it, even if the setting is disabled

Middle Mouse clicking on links anywhere else works as it should, it only do it on twitter for some reasons. Shift middle mouse doesn't work either

But clicking on an IMAGE on twitter does work normally.

Twitter is handling the middle-click event and opening a tab as a popup. Middle-clicking the date of the tweet does not have this issue. You can block all popups by going to about:config and clearing dom.popup_allowed_events.
