Turn of middle click page loading in Firefox

Posted by Simon Walker on Wed 23 June 2010

In linux, the middle mouse button by default pastes the contents of the clipboard into something. If I had a penny for every time I've miss middle-clicked a link and tried to open a url like "for \$file in `ls`"...

To disable this "feature", go to about:config in firefox then change

middlemouse.contentLoadURL -> false

This will disable middle-click url loading.
