Using Chrome v30 dev. When middle clicking on a link it usually opens the link in another tab, however now it does nothing. Same thing for middle clicking on a tab, used to close the tab, now it does nothing.

 

Anyone else having this?

 

Had the issue for the last 2 days pretty much.

Chromium Snapshot Version 30.0.1592.0 (216792) and everything seems to fine, so might be in future releases it will be fixed. I don't have Chrome Dev to reconfirm that this is known an issue, but letting you know that the future version does not have an issue.

30.0.1591.2 Canary working fine as well.

Either they released a bad build to the dev channel, or maybe a misbehaving extension?

disabled all extensions and still does it, so gotta be the build. Thanks both of you. I'll sit tight for a couple of days and wait for an update to be pushed!

Thinking about it, middle click isn't working anywhere in the OS. Oh well must be ms drivers!

If it's not working throughout the OS did you check settings in Mouse properties via Control Panel?

 

Also, go to the manufacturers website for your specific mouse and download the driver again.

There seems to be a bug with Chrome 29+. Copy and paste this to a test.html file and run it in Chrome. Any other browser will open the link with a middle click, except Chrome. Chrome sees the event (which cancels left clicks) when it should not.

Safari 5 had the issue as well, the fix is to change line 33 from this:

if( (target.tagName.toLowerCase() == 'a')

to this ...

if( (target.tagName.toLowerCase() == 'a') && event.button == 0)

Here we specifically filter out everything but left clicks. The problem for Chrome users is that most websites are coded to only responding to the onClick event which acts on the middle click also.
