Middle Click in Firefox

Firefox has this annoying middle click shortcut for loading URLs. I like to use middle click to scroll so it gets tedious when firefox keeps on opening new webpages. How do I disable this behaviour?

type about:config in the address field. Scroll down and set middlemouse.contentLoadURL to false. This will change the behavior and quit that annoying habit. Note, when set to false, if you middle click on the tab, it will close the tab.
