I recently spent a couple of minutes writing a message to the diamond moderators, only to lose it when I middle clicked outside the flag dialog to activate autoscroll and the dialog unexpectedly closed. A little testing reveals that middle clicking links elsewhere on the page also closes the flagging dialog. This seems to be a reappearance of this bug, which was apparently fixed previously: StackExchange popup closes when using middle click.

It's not the biggest problem in the world, but a fix would be nice.

This is fixed: only left clicks will close pop ups now.

It will be pushed out in the next deployment later today.
