Releasing middle-mouse on top of Bookmarks Bar folder opens tabs

  • This quite annoying thing happens quite often when you regularly use middle-mouse clicking to scroll pages:

    1. Middle-mouse click anywhere outside of the Bookmarks Bar (ie. in any web page)
    2. Hold the button down
    3. Move the mouse on top of a folder with bookmarks in the Bookmarks Bar
    4. Release the button

    What happens: All tabs in that folder will open
    Expected: Nothing should open since I never did a MouseDown on the bookmark folder

    The bookmarks folder items should only open if you middle-click on top of the folder. Not when you do the middle-click outside of the bookmarks bar and then release it. The result of this is that you "randomly" accidentally open a whole bunch of tabs when scrolling a page.
