Firefox Middle click switch monitors

I've been using DF for a while with Chrome and have become really accustomed to simply using the middle click to switch Chrome form one monitor to the other. I recently switched to Firefox though and it seems that the new version of Firefox uses a middle click on the tab row on top to open a new tab. When I attempt to middle click above the row of tabs, the Firefox window doesn't switch to my other monitor like it did with Chrome. I hardly ever have my browser windows maximized in full screen and I'm more familiar with using Alt+T to open a new tab then any other method. Regardless is there a way to gain the ability to switch a Firefox from one monitor to the other with the middle mouse button?

We had to exclude the Firefox TitleBar, because of the New Tab function, but you can still middle-click move it by middle-clicking on the Firefox caption buttons (Minimize, Maximize, Close, on the top-right of the window).

I also have a problem with Firefox .. Is there any possibility to disable the window switching on middle mouse button click? i use it to close Firefox tabs and it makes the browser window switch to the other monitor ... Is there a way to disable that feature just for firefox ? I did not find a way to do it in the compatibility options..

If you head into the compatibility settings in Display Fusion, you can add Firefox, and check off "Disable middle-click window moving".

Hope that helps!
