Hey, my mouse's scroll wheel usually opens another tab in firefox when I click on a link with it, but lately, it just won't seem to open a new tab at all. What can I do so that it will do this again?

Also, is there any way possible for me to click the scroll wheel in the middle of a page to scroll down a page without having to turn the scroll wheel?

Does middle click work anywhere else? I mainly want to figure out if this is a problem with the physical mouse or a software issue.

The middle click was not working anywhere else. Just a while ago, I just randomly tried clicking on everything with the middle click. All of the sudden, the middle click started opening new tabs in firefox again.

Sounds like a hardware problem. Your mouse might be aging. :lol: Glad it works again.
