broken middle-click is bugging me too

Thanks for filing this bug.

I see you got an answer.

But I don't know web programming well enough to immediately tell if dr_onMouseupEvent is intentionally breaking middle-click, or if it's attempting to do something else (like collecting click data on users for marketing purposes) and along the way mistakenly breaking middle-click.

I kinda want to give LJ the benefit of the doubt, because why would they want to intentionally break it?

And if it is a mistake, is it Chrome's or LJ's?

Hoping someone else will chime in here.
