    I have just put FireFox on my Powerbook, after using it on my PC and I have noticed that on the Mac I can't click the scroll wheel to open a new tab. I checked the preferences looking for the option but to no avail. Does anyone know if this is possible or a tweak ? It works with my PC and Firefox and even Safari gives you this option.

    I haven't had any luck with it either. I am sure there is probably a way to do it but I have no idea how...

    that feature has never seemed to have worked. I keep reading that they are going to fix it but I haven't seen or heard of any progress. Seems like it would be simple enough though. Of course, I'm no programmer.
