Middle clicking on the account name in the top navigation bar should open the profile page (in a new tab). Since the pull down menu was introduced today, middle clicking does not do anything anymore.

There was support for middle-clicking on the account name before? I had no idea. I don't think I even have a mouse with a middle-click button. –  Cody Gray Mar 11 '11 at 7:45
    
Also Ctrl-click. –  Teddy Mar 11 '11 at 7:50

Also, clicking my name should take me directly to my account...and not open the pop-up menu (which I love btw.). –  Time Traveling Bobby Mar 11 '11 at 8:12

@Cody, middle-clicking is a browser feature for normal links (which often open a link in a new tab or window then, often also offered through some modifier key like Ctrl, Option or Command). So, the issue was just that the account name no longer was a normal link, but some JavaScript. –  Arjan Mar 12 '11 at 13:30

The behavior of the popup is now a hover, clicking is a normal link that will take you to your profile (mobile users included).

Well, they've changed it from a link to a popup menu. And as far as I can tell, the middle click works only for links. (Can't say I like the change, though. I used to middle-click, too.)
