#45 Scroll wheel = Middle mouse button

Are you sure your scroll wheel isn't also a middle mouse button? I have a Microsoft mouse, and a Logitech mouse, and they both have scroll wheels that act as middle buttons when pressed.

I use my middle mouse button (scroll wheel button) all the time in Mozilla to open links in new tabs, or to open links from e-mail in a new window.

You can also click on a tab with the middle mouse button to close it.

Mozilla is the first app I've used to make good use of the middle mouse button, and I love it.
