Disable double click download for multiple selected?

Postby Lurker » Sat Nov 07, 2020 11:38 am

Quick question, is there a way to disable the auto download on double left mouse click if multiple files are selected? I want to have to specifically right-click and select "download" if more than one item is selected.

Every now and then it seems my mouse registers 2 clicks instead of 1. Normally that isn't an issue since it doesn't happen all that often but when I was cleaning out a group that got spammed by one of those bots posting tiny 800k files by selecting them and shift + del the posts, it happened. So newsbin happily started downloading them and by the time I could stop it, it had downloaded quite a large number of them so I just am looking for a way to prevent that.

Typically it's impossible to double-click on multiple selections because the first click will de-select the other items. Your mouse would have to register two clicks faster than a human can possibly do it.

That said, I wrote a note to look into preventing it even in this case.
