Middle click opens a new window
I have issues with my mousewheel so I like to press Middleclick to open this circle, in which I then move my mouse up or down to scroll. It's also called "Auto Scroll".
The trouble is, when you activate it on a link, it opens a new tab instead of activating auto scroll. So thats when I disabled that in about:config. I set browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick to false.
But not what it does is it opens a new window. And I don't know how to disable that.
Do any of you know a workaround? I know there are extensions for this but I really really like the basic Autoscroll.

The problem here is even if you go in and disable "open in new window" by adjusting another setting it'll just open the link in the current tab/window :(.
There might be an extension that can disable opening links with middle click completely rather than replacing autoscroll entirely, however I cannot find one. I know the code exists (by looking for auxclick and preventdefault()), but it doesn't seem anyone has written one yet.)
You will have to make sure that you do not middle-click on an element that accepts a mouse click. Only if you click in 'free space' you can activate auto-scroll.
For some reason clicking on an active element happens for me a lot of times when one window (e.g the developer tools in a standalone window) is active and is on top of another window that I want to bring up front with a click in this window instead of using Alt + Tab or other ways.
http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config_entries#Browser. browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick Determines the behavior of a link when middle-clicked. True (default): Opens link in new tab False: Opens link in new window
As you can see False does not mean you are turning middle-click off but rather open links in a new window.
Still, there should be an option for disabling middle-clicking links altogether. People have requested this for the past 15 years.
On some sites, such as ArtStation, links can cover 90% of the page making it very awkward to use AutoScroll.
Try to middle-click the scroll bar to see whether that works.
That is already what I do. Which partly renders it useless as I could just use the scroll bar itself instead.
