Sorry, but arguing that everyone should go out and buy a new mouse rather than getting the software to work the way it should is just silly.

I think the point is more that if you're going to buy a new mouse anyway, you might want to pay more attention to the software that comes with it. Kensington MouseWorks has a similar feature, and I've been enjoying it immensely for all kinds of things in lots of applications.

Logitech also has it's own system preferences control panel where you can specify what the middle wheel click should do (e.g. have it command+click). IMHO this is not the responsibility of firefox developers. They have more important things to work on, like improving the rendering speed of the browser.

Need I say it again? It is the responsibility of Firefox developers to properly support the user interfaces of the platforms they support. Another common misconception about the open source community is that there is some magical "pool of developers" that needs to concentrate their efforts more on this or that. In reality, different individuals take ownership or maintenence responsibility of different pieces of projects. In fact, as stated elsewhere in this thread, the problem was fixed. But the fix has yet to make it beyond CVS to an actual release and is probably lost in the noise. We may not actually see it in a release version until Firefox 1.1.
