Comment (by arma):

 For those of us who don't have a mouse wheel, can you explain what it's
 actually doing?

 Is that the same as "middle mouse click" on X?

 So your issue is that when you middle click, you had highlighted a URL
 before, and you're unhappy that X remembers the text that you had

 If that's what's going on, I think disabling "you can conveniently copy
 and paste stuff in the browser and in the rest of your applications" would
 be a huge lose for usability.
