By pressing the scroll wheel of the mouse does not open link in a new tab

Since the upgrade to Version 38.0.1, this action no longer works. I can right-click and select a link to open it in a new tab, but pressing the mouse wheel is no longer works as a shortcut.

Please correct or advise if there is a setting that I can shape to get this feature.

Thank you.


It is with the middle clicking a link on a web page or is not all click workplace?

Is required to work Ctrl and left click to open the link in a new tab?

Have you checked the settings in the mouse driver software to click on the scroll wheel?

  • The middle button does not open links in a new tab.

    If your only solution is to tell me:
    1 restart my computer
    2. start Firefox in safe mode
    3. use an another keyboard shortcut to open a new tab that isn't the central button of the mouse.

    Even bother replying. As I did the first two and it makes no difference and the 3rd option is a solution to everything.

    It's frustrating and I'm a little upset that after reading 20 + Pages of the same problem of 2011 that there are no answers.

    I'm on a new installation of Windows XP (yes I know old school) with firefox version 27.0.1.

    COR - El I made everyone everyone else offered on all of the other forums.

    I plugged my mouse on another computer and it worked fine. Then allows me to know its either something fishy with firefox or my computer.

    That I wrote that I discovered what my problem was. But I'm not sure why. I'll explain here in case someone else has a similar problem.

    If I Middle click on + hold click here for a solid second on the link, it will open a new tab.

    It just seems like there is a huge delay in my middle mouse click speed on this system.

    Either passing I'll discuss this further on my own. I appreciate all of your time.

  • Click on the mouse does not open some items on my desktop.

    On the desktop of my laptop, double click will not open one of the icons.  To open my HOTMAIL (for example), I have to go down to the Explorer icon and type in HOTMAIL.COM. This is just one example.  I may need a new mouse?  Or a new battery for my mouse?  Thank you!  Kay

    Double click will not open one of the icons.

    See what you can do with right click instead?

  • Windows 8 - horizontal scroll on the mouse does not

    Hello, everyone,

    I have a system running 64-bit Windows 8. My Gigabyte M6980 mouse has a wheel tilt with a capacity to reach not only up and down but also left and right. However, the inclination of the wheel does not record in my Win8 machine.

    I plugged the mouse on a Vista laptop where initially the system has not yet recognized the mouse at all (the cursor is not mobile). After going to the Manager of devices and update the driver for the "unknown device" which was M6980, it became a "HID-compatible mouse. I could then move the cursor AND use the horizontal scrolling. On a Windows 7 computer, the mouse was recognized immediately and I could use horizontal scrolling very well.

    I tried to copy mouclass.sys of my laptop Vista and mouhid.sys to C:/Windows/System32/drivers on my machine Windows 8, but then the mouse could not be recognized at all the original files should be restored. The same thing happened when I copied the same files from a Windows 7 machine.

    Gigabyte support response is that the mouse does not officially support Windows 8 and all the features are not guaranteed. There are no drivers available for the device and the only software that comes with it is motor Ghost of Gigabyte for remapping keys. But given that horizontal scrolling works in Windows 7 without any additional software, I suspect driver Windows 8 HID is involved, although I could well be wrong. I couldn't Google solutions. Any help would be appreciated.

    See you soon,.

    Hi ShiuabKhan,

    Thanks for a quick reply. Windows 8 is now picking up the thin horizontal scrolling messages. I tried to randomly check the software option Gigabyte 'disable horizontal scrolling' and apply changes and then uncheck the new, and, curiously, it started working. However, I install the latest version of the software from Gigabyte (which just happened to be released February 1) in compatibility mode to be on the safe side.

    Although the system is now picking up messages from horizontal scrolling of the mouse, my Battlefield 3 game won't recognize them, but is not a Windows problem, so I'll find an answer elsewhere.

    Thank you much for the help!

    See you soon,.

  • Satellite C660 - click of the mouse does not work


    I bought this laptop 5 weeks ago and now have problems with the right, click on the mouse does not work. Left click sometimes opens to the left, click on functions and leaves me is impossible to close programs or closed, double clicking in the pavement or enter does not work also.

    I tried to do a system restore to the factory, but I can not click on the next to take me through the restoration and end up having to close it via the main power switch.

    Any ideas please?

    If an external mouse works correctly, you can use it to do a recovery install. This can help you to solve the problem, if this just s software.

    Not least have last but you tried to update the driver for the touchpad? You can find it on the official website of Toshiba: > support & downloads > download drivers

  • The mouse does not work on my new Satellite L750/L755

    Hello world

    I bought a toshiba Satellite L750/L755 but the mouse does not work, I have no control on it that if I use an external mouse, while I have put pressure on the touchpad.
    I tried the following options:
    I updated the driver - I changed the operating system

    but nothing, still the same problem. Next laptop will be a Mac for sure.

    I look forward to hear from you


    Hello Daniele

    It's really strange that the touchpad does not work even if you have installed the right driver and installed the operating system again. At the first moment, we can say there is probably a hardware problem, but please be sure touchpad is listed in the Device Manager and also active correctly (FN keys).

    Check it please all the properties of the mouse.

  • Click of the mouse does not

    I recently bought a computer laptop sony vaio E15136 nine. The mouse was used to work much earlier, but now, the click of the mouse does not work in some parts of the screen. And the problem is not specific program. The click of the mouse does not work in this part of the screen for all programs. It does not in the upper left corner of the screen. He has no problem moving the cursor in this part, only clicking.


    Strange.  Have you tried a mouse USB or WiFi?  The same thing happens?  Also, have you tried to uninstall the touchpad driver and reinstall the driver from the touchpad on the site of support for your model:

    Please install all software updates/patches, then reboot and recheck the touchpad function.
