Disable middle click tab bar

Kuphostiwe

My previous question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1254024

With the latest update, the following css tweak to disable the creation of new tab when middle clicking the empty tab bar area no longer works.

This along with the shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+P to open a new private window are features no other browsers have.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hmm, still works for me, except the new tab + button wasn't working so I had to change its selector:

/* Block middle-click on tab bar */
#tabbrowser-tabs .arrowscrollbox-scrollbox {
  pointer-events: none;
}
/* Exceptions: tabs, new tab button */
.tabbrowser-tab, #tabs-newtab-button {
  pointer-events: auto !important;
}

This was in a new Firefox profile on Windows, so no title bar, no menu bar, tabs on top, etc.

My bad, you're correct that it only stops the new tab button from working. I was really frustrated when posting this as I had to remove the css tweak from every device thinking it wouldn't work.

Thank you so much for resolving this!

Impendulo Ewusizo

This might be better code to allow a long press on the new tab button (containers tabs menu), otherwise you can't click an item in this drop-down menu.

/* TAB - Pointer Events */
#tabbrowser-tabs .arrowscrollbox-scrollbox{pointer-events: none}
.tabbrowser-tab,
#tabs-newtab-button,
.tabs-newtab-button,
.new-tab-popup, .new-tab-popup > *{pointer-events: auto}

Sorry for replying to this post again but is there another workaround for disabling this function or where the documentation for the tab bar CSS is?

There appears to have been a change in Firefox 71 for the selector. I hardly use middle-click in that area, so I hadn't noticed it.


/* TAB - Pointer Events [tested:68-73] */
#tabbrowser-tabs :-moz-any(.arrowscrollbox-scrollbox, .tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox) {pointer-events: none}
.tabbrowser-tab, #tabs-newtab-button, .tabs-newtab-button {pointer-events: auto}
.new-tab-popup, .new-tab-popup > * {pointer-events: auto}  /*container tabs - longpress*/

Can I just say I love you so much. I really cannot use Firefox without this tweak and it's been driving me nuts each time it breaks. Thank you so much!
