    I just cant stand some of the changes that I cant change back... 3.6.16 for me, for now.

    EDIT: Never mind, I just tried an updated install to my old 3.6.16 version and everything is nearly exactly the same, even my ancient outdated all-black theme. NICE

    Why would you middleclick or rightclick in FF? leftclicking works to for external links (in a tab pov).

    Middle-clicking doesn't "auto-navigate"; you can scroll down a page that's got 20 links on, middle-clicking each link as you go without having to switch the tab back each time.

    does anyone use middle-clicking to scroll pages? I can't live without it!

    I don't, though on my new phone scrolling goes in a similar way (holding the stylus on (the middle of) the screen and than "pushing" or "pulling the page up or down). It's a Samsung C3300i Star Mini, btw. Not a real smartphone but good enough for me and quite cheap.

    Same here, life wouldn't be the same without it!! I've also got used to using the side-buttons on my mouse as "back" and "forward" in the browser.

    I use the middle button (tilt left or right) for back/front as much as I use the side buttons. It depends on the mouse. If I claw grip I prefer the side buttons, if I do my bizarre hybrid then I prefer the middle
