Fixing middle-click paste in Firefox

I hate it when new versions of software change the behavior of programs.
Somewhere in a Firefox update, I lost the common UNIX feature of middle-click for pasting an URL in Firefox.

I had to fix this problem on several machines, and each time I had to google the answer. It wasn’t the first hit showing the answer either…

Note to self for fixing this:

  • Open about:config in Firefox.
  • Change middlemouse.contentLoadURL to true
