Middle click in Firefox 4 - does not work in all cases

Usually I use the middle click option to get one window from monitor to the other monitor.

However with Firefox 4, the top of the window does not react to the middle click. However when "menu bar" is added to Firefox 4 it does allow middle click to work correctly.

Is it possible to not use the "menu bar" within Firefox 4 and still use the nice "middle click functionality?


"Menu bar" enabled middle click does work correct:

Menu bar disabled middle click does not work:

Settings within Firefox 4 "Menu bar disabled middle click does not work":

Unfortunately Firefox doesn't report the correct values when testing to see if the middle-click takes place in the titlebar. However, starting with Beta 6 (currently available for download) you can middle-click on the min/max/close buttons to move the window. It's not perfect, but it's the best that can be done with Firefox 4's new custom titlebar. :)

Sorry, I was mistaken, this feature is in the unreleased Beta 7, due out in a couple of days. :)
