disable middle mouse button PASTE in firefox [SOLVED]

Postby dootzky on Sun Jan 11, 2009 1:22 pm

hi guys,

just wondering - how can I disable middle-mouse-button CLICK to do a PASTE action in Firefox, under Mint 5?
I use Compiz, if that helps?

Thanks!!

Try this,

type about:config in the address bar.
search for middlemouse.paste
try changing that to false and see what happens.
