Description Panagiotis Papadopoulos 2009-06-12 23:15:25 UTC
Version:            (using Devel)
OS:                Linux

The general behaviour of Dolphin, when middle clicking folders, is to open those folders in a background tab, without switching the view to the new tab.

If you middle click a folder in the location panel, Dolphin opens the folder in a new tab, but also activates/switches the view to the new tab.

For consistency reasons I would change the behaviour of middle clicking in the location panel, so that it would only open the folder in a background tab, without "jumping" to that folder, just like with "normal" folders

Thank you
