How do I configure FF or Chrome to close a tab when I middle click on it?

(I'm in the midst of migrating to OSX from linux)

  • Is your mouse set to use middle click on the wheel in system preferences? Jul 24, 2015 at 20:28
  • The mouse settings are not active - I'm using synergy. I hate the acceleration model mac uses, so my keyboard and mouse are connected to an old linux desktop. Might that be causing this to not work? Jul 27, 2015 at 17:04

This was due to using synergy - when I plug my mouse in directly, it works as expected.
