Problem with middle click on Linux

1. Describe the bug/issue you’re running into?

When moving around using the mouse middle button, I’m pasting text snippets all the time.

2. Are you able to consistently reproduce it? If so what are the steps?

  1. Select some text, somewhere.
  2. Go to figma.
  3. Use middle wheel to move.

3. Share a screenshot, recording, console log, link to the file, etc.

4. Is the issue only happening in desktop app or a specific browser , or both?

GNOME 41 desktop.

5. What OS/version and/or browser/version are you using?

I use Linux (Fedora Silverblue 35), and Firefox 97.0.

Notice that this middle-click-to-paste-last-selection behaviour is perfectly normal on Linux. Actually, it’s a feature. However, the click event should stop the native behaviour and only drag.
