28 Just to add to this.  In Firefox, it worked in the past, I sort of found
29 it annoying when I would accidentally middle click and off it went.  It
30 no longer works now.  It does however work in Seamonkey.  It worked in
31 the past as well.  I did upgrade Firefox as well as a small number of
32 KDE packages the other day, Monday USA time.
