Fix middle mouse button opening broken release notes link in browser #76487

Fixes #76042

The middle mouse button now has the same effect as the left and right mouse button.
Clicking a link with the middle mouse button scrolls down to the clicked section instead of opening a broken link in the browser.

I tested this by temporarily changing the product version to 1.35 in package.json. Otherwise I was not able to open the release notes. I changed it back to 1.37 for this commit.

Because the click event only fires on left mouse button clicks. To prevent the middle mouse button from opening broken links in the browser, I needed to have an event that fires on middle clicks as well.

Thanks! This will be in the next VS Code insiders build. We will see if it causes any problem for people using various input setups
