Today I booted up my PC, opened Firefox, and went through my usual habit of going to some pages, middle clicking every interesting new link to open it in a new tab, and then casually working my way through them. Today however I've noticed that this doesn't work any more.
What DOES work:
- Middle clicking on a link in my bookmarks bar opens it in a new page
- Middle click scrolling
- Right click -> Open in new tab
What DOESN'T work:
- Middle clicking any link on any web page to open it in a new tab
- CTRL + clicking on a link to open it in a new tab
I haven't installed any new add-ons or removed anything – the function just… disappeared. I checked the value of
about:config and it's set to true.
Has anyone happened to have had the same problem, and if so, how did you fix it?
