hmm, the general mouse settings do indeed seem to be missing any
options for middle wheel and button.
I also seem to be a heavy scroller as i often get an 'invalid URL'
error when I'm scrolling with the wheel in FF.
So I just looked in Firefox's about:config and setting
middlemouse.contentLoadURL to false does the trick for me. There's
also a middlemouse.openNewWindow but I'm not sure when that comes into
