seems resanable... to say that this exist for 10.x as well... as the behavior
doesn't exist in the Finder but in Firefox and Seamonkey's... so moving to os
x... but what should the expected behavior be? I've come to expect this.

So moving for now... action later?

Expected behavior, as I wrote in comment 0, is to begin selection of text in word-
by-word mode. Y'know, just like selecting text works in every other Windows/Mac app.

I think it might be simpler then to just reduce the concept of this bug to
click-and hold then... would you agree with that... as that shouldn't be
expected behavior... I only ask what the expected behavior is mostly out
repetitive conditioning I've come to expect this... so at first I was a little
confusead :)

No, click-and-hold should begin selection of text in character-by-character mode. 
And it already does, so that's not a bug. This bug is not about click-and-hold.

hmmm... sometimes when I click and hold I do get a context menu and not
character-by-character mode... not often but I do... thats why I was wonder.
dead bug?
Yeah, dead now that click-and-hold doesn't open context menus.
