Yep, bugs me, but not as much as no longer being able to do "Edit
Bookmarks Here..." or whatever it was called... :-)

GConf Editor is your friend! :-) At least for the mouse button
1. Run gconf-editor (possibly from Applications -> System Tools ->
2. Go to apps -> galeon -> UI -> Mouse
3. Set middle_button_action to 1. (Wow, the help is back after a long
absence, so you can see what the other values mean! :-)
OK, they changed it. 1 is "Paste url in new tab", while 6 is "Paste
in current tab". The latter is my preferred behaviour.
I've also got right_button_action set to 1, which is:
perform gestures, displaying context menu on button release
The simpler gestures, like a right-to-left drag to go back a page, are
gconf-editor lets you access a lot of the options that have
"disappeared" in different applications. I've got Galeon saving its
session on exit, and have managed to tell Metacity a thing or 2...
peace & happiness,
