Mouse Wheel Clicking in Firefox

Category: SoftwareTeknovis @ 4:06 pm

I just discovered two great new ways of using the mouse wheel in Firefox besides scrolling!

  • Clicking the mouse wheel while the cursor is over a link opens the link in a new tab! That is great, because I normally right click on links, and then select Open Link in New Tab.
  • Clicking the mouse wheel while the cursor is over a tab will close that tab! This is very useful for me, because I changed the location of the close tab button as described in Browser.tabs.closeButtons.
