Internet Explorer 7 middle mouse button new tab bug
In Internet Explorer 7 you can open a new tab by pressing the middle mouse
button to open a link from the favorites.

But, when you press the middle mouse button while the page is still loading
it won't make a new tab, instead it will open the page in the same tab you
are still loading.

It's annoying and im surprised this hasn't been fixed yet, this problem just
does not exist in Firefox or Chrome or even Opera, only IE does this.

That function is NOT part of Windows but is supplied via the mouse software
you have installed. It is the hardware mfgs. responsibility to make it work
correctly if they choose to have this as an option with their hardware.

Re: Internet Explorer 7 middle mouse button new tab bug
Richard, I think you didn't understand what I said.

The problem is this, if you have a tab that is currently in the process of
loading a webpage and you press the middle mouse button on a favorite link,
it will replace the page that is still loading instead of opening a new tab.

This problem doesn't happen when the current page load is complete, when you
press middle mouse button on a favorite link it will open a new tab only if
the current page viewed completed loading.

I didn't install any software for my mouse, this problem happens in every
PC, it has nothing to do with the hardware or any mouse software.
