laptop middle mouse button

I’ve been complaining as long as I’ve been using a laptop that I miss a middle mouse button because I’m so used to using it on my regular mouse esp. to open pages in new tabs in Firefox.

I accidentally discovered today that at least on my laptop Dell Inspiron 6400, if you click on the left and right buttons simultaneously, it acts as a middle button click.

For example, I can click on any links in Firefox with both buttons to open them in new tabs.
