* Input fields (input areas, input dialogs and search fields) are the only Building Blocks with selectable text. 

* HTML elements like buttons or links, or events like ontouchstart or onclick, should trigger the action when tapped rather than triggering text selection.
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 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);
Blocks: 2.2-gallery
This is a 2.2 feature.

Hi David
As per attached text selection guidelines, submitting patch so that gallery app by default should not have any selectable text. Please review. Thanks!

Patch with fix of Bug 1092967

r+, but talk to Russ before landing. In his bug for the video app, he's putting -moz-user-select:none on each absolutely positioned element rather than using the * wildcard. I'm okay with both approaches, but the two of you might want to consider using the same approach in both apps.

I updated to point out that this property is not inherited by absolutely positioned elements in Firefox.
