Open new tab

    I used to have a Trust mouse, when I click the middle (wheel) button on
    a link in firefox it would open the link in a new tab without switching
    to it. I used this feature a lot as it's great for researching and
    building up a list of documents to read whilst not having to leave the
    main search page.

    Anyway, Trust mouse died so I've just got a logitech MX1000,
    unfortunately the middle button is assigned to zoom! Now, I can
    reassign it to something else but can I get it to open the links? Can I
    hell!

    Any ideas? It's not in the basic actions list for the mouse but I can
    assign the button to represent any keypress I need. I did try ALT+ENTER
    but that only seems to apply to the main address bar.

    If there's 'middle-click' or in 'other' in the list try that,
    otherwise here are lists of Mouse and Keyboard Shortcuts:
