I was wondering is there an extension similar to Chrome's: https://chrome.googl...mjfcfoceboliing where it will fix middle clicking on a lot of links? One of the sites I am on all the time is in a iframe state and middle click does not working there at all. Was wondering if there was a way to fix this on Safari?

I found extension called Linkthing which is starting to do what I want, but I can't stop it from when I middle click a link to opening that link on the current tab I am on. It will open the link I middle click on current tab and in a new tab.

I use this.

I just add it to the Login Items so it opens upon reboot and it allows me to middle click via my trackpad on every application.

Thank you.

Will that work on a Magic Mouse and in the latest OSX? I noticed it just mentions Snow Leopard.

chances are, if it works on snow leopard it will work fine on Lion, unless it uses power pc code

That didn't seem to work Unrealistic sadly. ATM just trying to find something that'll work with a traditional 3 button mouse (using a Razr) atm, where I can middle click with the wheel and have it open links. It seems to be a webkit issue as Chrome had the exact same problem on certain links, until I found this middle click extension in the Chrome Web Store.

Not sure on the Magic Mouse but I use it on Lion exclusively. I doubt it does. Look below.

http://magicprefs.com/ -> This is a much more advanced version of Middle Click, but I don't think it will work on a Razr.

http://bettertouchtool.net/ -> This is an alternative to Magic Prefs, although I haven't used it in a while. It allows you to modify normal mice. This should be what you need.

The main issue is it seems to be a Safari issue and not mouse. I can middle click with mods just fine on Chrome or Firefix, but Safari not so much.
