I use to accidentally doubleclick an archive on a remote FS (in a FISH panel) and then it starts being downloaded to be opened - very annoying. Can I prevent MC opening files with the mouse to avoid this?

It would also be nice to totally forbid opening remote files with Enter (I don't mean F3 or F4 - those are fine) leaving explicit download (copy to local) the only option.

You can disable mouse support using using the -d option when invoking the Midnight Commander.
