No new tabs in Firefox


I've just installed Slackware 10.1, I'm a Fedora refugee. I've had to do some adjusting to X to get my wheel mouse working right, but everything is good now, but I'm still unable to get Firefox to open new tabs. My mouse is a Logitech Optical, 2 buttons and a wheel. Center clicking the wheel won't open a link in a new tab, neither will Ctrl+click/Enter as I have setup in my Tabbrowser Preferences. I can Ctrl+t and open a new blank tab, and also double clicking on the tab bar opens a new blank. The middle button(wheel) on the mouse will turn on the autoscroll, and it works fine in other applications. I've tried a couple of the scripts that I found on this site but still no luck. I'm using the firefox I downloaded from slackware.com out of slackware-current. Does anybody have any more help or information? The other discussions I've found have been helpful, but haven't solved the problem yet.

thanks

what does your mouse section look like in your xorg.conf?

My xorg.conf

Here is the xorg.conf from /etc/X11. I don't at this time have one setup in my home directory. It took a little experimentation to get the config just right for the wheel to work correctly, which it does now.

# **********************************************************************
# Core Pointer's InputDevice section
# **********************************************************************

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Buttons" "5"

# Mouse-speed setting for PS/2 mouse.

# Option "Resolution" "256"

# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment
# the following line.

# Option "Protocol" "Xqueue"

# Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice. In
# almost every case these lines should be omitted.

# Option "BaudRate" "9600"
# Option "SampleRate" "150"

# Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice
# Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms)

# Option "Emulate3Buttons"
# Option "Emulate3Timeout" "50"

# ChordMiddle is an option for some 3-button Logitech mice

# Option "ChordMiddle"

I had tried that earlier, but upon your suggestion I've done so again. Still no luck I'm afraid.
