As of from https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/CodeMirror/zjgIFMPBjrw/KpSrYfucdEoJ, this is the limitation of codeMirror2 until further patch by Mozilla.

Just another reason we should let users switch between CodeMirror and textarea, I suppose.

Comment 6 Patrick Huang 2012-11-08 20:26:07 EST
Due to Firefox api limitation, code mirror will not support middle click in firefox. If user wants to use this functionality, they have to either switch to Chrome, or switch off code mirror syntax highlight editor and use plain textarea.

As Patrick stated, code mirror does not support the middle click in firefox.

However, turn off 'Use CodeMirror Editor' make the middle click work again.

Ace (a codemirror alternative) has a similar problem: https://github.com/ajaxorg/ace/issues/175
