    I just got my Mighty Mouse and I love it!

    One thing that is bothering me though...

    In Firefox, I like to use the middle click to open links/bookmark icons in the background. I also like to use the middle click to close tabs.

    However, with the Mighty Mouse I am having trouble getting this functionality to work. I've read that other people have gotten Firefox and their Mighty Mouse to work in the way I described above, but they don't specify how they configured it do make it work.

    Do you know what Firefox extension I should use to get this middle button functionality to work? Thank you very much for any help.

    I asked if this was possible in another Mighty Mouse thread, and someone answered "yes it is", but I don't know how it can be done.

    I assume you have set the scroll ball click to trigger a Button 3 click?

    What exactly can we do with this Button 3 configuration?

    Can I set it for any keystroke?
    For instance i would like it to do a CMD-[ so that i can go "back" on Safari.

    Yeah it doesn't seem like we can assign keystrokes to the buttons. Too bad.


    If anyone knows how to solve my problem, I would greatly appreciate it.

    i'm using this and i love it.
    http://www.bitart.com/CocoaGestures.html the drawback is that it only works with Cocoa apps like Safari.
