[Linux] Make middlemouse behave like in windows

Post by Lord_Brezel » 2015-09-02, 12:27

In Linux builds of Palemoon the middle-click is usually mapped to pasting the secondary clipboard as url to open or text to input.

Its very different than in Windows, where middle click triggers the free scrolling feature.

If you want the behaviour like on Windows instead of always accidentally replacing your page with whatever is in the x clipboard,
change these settings in about:config

middlemouse.paste to false
middlemouse.contentLoadURL to false
general.autoScroll to true
