    Middle-click close (XP Pro)

    This is definitely a nice-to-have rather than a priority issue...

    Using tabbed browsing in Firefox, you can close tabs by middle-clicking them. I find this a really useful feature, and notice that when I middle-click items on the Windows taskbar, nothing happens. So, is there a way I can assign the "Close" command to the middle-click event for items on the windows taskbar?

    If at first you do succeed, you've probably missed something.

    It depends on the mouse driver, it's not a Windows feature. Check the Mouse control panel to see if your mouse driver software allows you to redefine the action associated with middle-clicking.

    Thanks, Hans. I'd already tried that and it's a <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15> so I'll put this one in my good-ideas-that-can't-be-implemented bin. Maybe Windows Vista will allow a bit more customisation. <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>

    Make sure you have the most current drivers for the mouse. Often OEMs use a generic mouse driver that does not support all the functionality that a vendor specific driver does.
