Hey guys, seems an issue similar to this: https://slickdeals.net/f/8121880-middle-clicking-on-some-links-on-slickdeals-net-now-fails-in-firefox-41-0?page=2#commentsBox has cropped up again; If i middle click on the comment button on the bottom of front page deals, I get a popup blocked message. ctrl-click works fine though.

The site has a specific script setup to disable middle-clicking on the homepage for some reason. I think it's one of the https://assets.adobedtm.com scripts. As you noticed, CTRL-CLICK will still allow you to quickly open in a new tab in Firefox. It's annoying.

Thanks for reporting this, it has been ticketed and they'll work on a fix.
