When I hold down my scroll wheel and move my mouse up and down to scroll pages, when I release, firebird thinks I'm trying to open/click on a link. How do I make it stop thinking this?

user_pref('browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick', false); in user.js

although then you'll miss out on this functionality

I don't think it's trying to open a new tab... occasionally it think's I'm clicking on a link, other times it thinks I'm searching up the word that I middle-click on in google... thus I end up visiting random sites by scrolling down a page. I think this might have to do with a mozilla conflict?

you may want to disable middle click paste as well

user_pref('middlemouse.paste', false);

I prefer these over autoscroll, although if you miss middle clicking a link, it does go off googling when you don't want it to : )
