Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 195973
Middle button in Konqueror no longer works after update to KDE 3.5.3
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:35 EST
Description of problem:
In Konqueror it used to be that clicking the middle mouse button on a URL or a
file would open the URL or file in a new window.
After installing todays KDE update using the "Software Updater" that middle
mouse button function no longer works i.e. clicking the middle mouse button on
a URL or file does not appear to do anything.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux diggle.localdomain 2.6.16-1.2133_FC5 #1 Tue Jun 6 00:52:14 EDT 2006 i686
athlon i386 GNU/Linux
Konqueror 3.5.3-0.1.fc5 Red Hat (Using KDE 3.5.3-0.2.fc5 Red Hat)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. goto news.google.com in Konqueror
2. click middle mouse button on a URL
The URL clicked on is not opened in a new Konqueror window
It used to be that the URL clicked on would open in a new Konqueror window.
I tried toggling the "Settings"->"Configure Konqueror..."->"Web
Behavior"->"Middle click opens URL in selection" - thinking that maybe it
needed to be "goosed" - but to no avail.
The just released update to the update of KDE resolved the problem. Great!
I'll nullify my bug report.
