This is the meta to track FxOS 2.2 Gaia per app's work on text selection (Cut/Copy/Paste). The Gecko work will be done and what each app needs to do is to leverage the CSS -moz-user-select https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/user-select and follow the UX design to make certain app elements non-selectable
The Gecko work is close to completion, the remaining part is to fix test case failures then pref it on in m-c bug 1092888. After the bug landed, text selection and cut/copy/paste can be triggered in apps on both editable and non-editable elements. Gaia per app work in v2.2 is to follow UX guideline and leverage CSS -moz-user-select https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/user-select to make certain elements non-selectable. Before Gecko is pref on in m-c, Gaia can manually switch it on by the following two pref to test in advance: pref("selectioncaret.enabled", on); pref("selectioncaret.noneditable", on);
