Arch Of The Day

While trying to use two finger scrolling, I observed this entertaining behavior:

Given my cursor is on a link
When I touch one finger
And then a second finger
And then drag up or down
Then each scroll event opens a new tab

This behavior can easily open 50 copies of the link under the cursor.

It appears resolved after disabling some middlemouse.* settings in firefox’s about:config.
