How to disable closing tabs with middle mouse click

I use FireFox on a Macintosh system. I recently purchased an Apple Magic Mouse, which has no discreet buttons and uses touch sensing to detect right and left mouse clicks. I also enabled a plug-in that allows support for a middle mouse click.

FireFox has this "feature" where by a middle mouse click on a tab can close that tab. When I'm using the Magic Mouse, sometimes I want to left click on a tag to activate it, however if I'm not paying close attention my finger is too far to the right, and the click with be detected as a middle click instead of a left click. So instead of accessing the tab, I will loose it completely, which leads to very undesirable user experience.

How can someone prevent FireFox from closing tabs with a middle mouse click?

Note that you can reopen (restore) such an accidentally closed tab. I'm not aware of any way to disable the middle-click behavior of closing a tab otherwise then using an extension to lock tabs against closing.

If someone was buffering a video on a site, restoring the tab isn't necessarily useful, as the video will need to be re-buffered.

I installed Tab Mix Plus, and hopefully that will solve the problem. It really seems that there should be a option to disable this feature.
