Disabling middle click paste.


I'm running on the latest mandrake distro and I was wondering how to diable the middle click to paste function. The reason I want this is because it causes my multizilla to open what is in the clipboard when I middle click on a tab. What I actually want it to do is close the tab when I middle click on it. Or, maybe someone has a better way to take care of this than diabling it?

Thanks

Is there a mozilla setting for that in the first place?
The middle-click-closing, I mean?

Btw, if I want to close a TAB I press Ctrl-W ;}
And I love middle-click-paste :}


[edit]
Are you a descenter?

Cheers,

ya I have all the mozilla setting set how they shoud be. Its just the pasting thats interfering, cuause when you paste something in the window it think you want to open it.
and about the descenter thing... umm well if that means that I have used windows quite a bit then yes.

Firefox is great... double-click to close tabs for me with Tabbrowser extensions. Anyway, I reccomend giving up because I don't think that it's possible. lol

Works like a charm. I figured it was a config.
