issues migrating to cocoa emacs (23.2) from carbon emacs (22) (continued)

(I posted a couple of months ago and wanted to follow up, particularly
for the issues for which I did not get a good response:
I'm trying the 23.2 release Cocoa Emacs build (OS X 10.6). There's a
number of things that are more annoying about Cocoa Emacs than the
terrific Carbon Emacs (based on an Emacs 22 build, I believe), so I
hoped folks might have some solutions/thoughts:
- I used to be able to option-click (in my mailer) on web links, but
that doesn't work any more. This might be mailer-specific, but I
don't think so; I think it used to map to middle-button, but it
doesn't any more (no matter which of the two remappings above I
I'm really hoping that one of the Mac developers will let the list
know what is the current keyboard equivalent for middle-button (and
will this work for launching web links?).
- Drag-and-drop of a file from the Finder into an emacs window used to
open that file in a new buffer. Now it just pastes into the current
buffer. I liked the old behavior a lot better.
- In Firefox, I can set the Preferences, Applications, mailto content
type to "Use Emacs". This used to work in Carbon Emacs. Now when I
click on a Firefox mailto link, it changes focus to Emacs but
doesn't actually do anything.
My .emacs has the following, which I guess doesn't work in 23:
'(("^http:" . browse-url-generic)
("^https:" . browse-url-generic)
("^mailto:" lambda (url &rest stuff) (compose-mail
(substring to 7)))
("^file:.*\\.html?$" . w3m-browse-url))
- I used to be able to "open -a Emacs foo.bar" in the terminal and
that would open in my current Emacs window. However, now it launches
in a new Emacs window. David Reitter mentioned "ns-pop-up-frames"
whose documentation is
Non-nil means open files upon request from the Workspace in a new
frame. If t, always do so. Any other non-nil value means open a
new frame unless the current buffer is a scratch buffer.
This works for me when I set it to nil, so thanks David. The docs
note this changed in 23.1, so that's why. Solved!
