Middle click doesn't open new tab first time, then does

Strange new bug. Middle click doesn't open new tabe on first use, but after that it does, even on the same link. How do I fix this?

What version are you using? It's also probably worth noting your mouse and Windows version, too

Not getting it here using IntelliPoint with Trackball Explorer. Is it consistent or does it happen sporadically?

Unless you just installed a new build of Avant, my first thought would be that a reinstall of the mouse drivers would be a good first step.

Also, do you have the issue middle-clicking tabs? (Depending on what your settings are at Tools -> Avant Browser Options -> Mouse)

Happens consistently but ONLY on the first use of the middle click. On second and subsequent uses a new tab opens as it should.
Avant wasn't installed recently., re-installed mouse no change.
No issue middle clicking tabs
Thanks

Do you use any other browser, especially IE, enough to see if you're having the issue there, too.

Now I'm thinking the most likely culprit is some sort of focus issue with the page. If you can remember, try to see what happens if you left click somewhere on the page that doesn't contain a link before you middle-click your link. Maybe the page is losing focus and your first middle-click is bringing focus back causing you to have to click again.

Maybe the issue isn't mouse or pointer related at all, but rather what part of the browser is active.
