I see this behavior on Win XP build 2001120303, marking new
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Is this still a bug? WFM, Linux CVS.
Yes, I see this behavior still on win 2k build 2002010403
Build 20020214 Win2K: using the above URL, text selection is flaky. Sometimes is manage to select a whole paragraph, but usually the selection fails when moving from one line to another. I think this is a BiDi problem.
I doubt that it is a BiDi problem. The articles in the English version of the site ( http://www.haaretzdaily.com/ ) show the same problem. I looked off-line at one of the articles, taking out the dir="ltr" tag in front of the article's body, and the problem was still there.
I stand corrected. Somehow I've been able to miss this problem :) I think I've also seen a bug about selection of multiple paragraphs not working if the style changes or something..
this IS a bidi problem believe it or not. in layout if ANY of the content has a BIDI setting on it it causes this behaviour. I had this bug in the sample code of tables i believe once. Debug->ViewerDemos->SimpleTables where selection was totally hosed in tables on that page. If you remove the last example and remove anything there having to do with RTL then selection of ALL the tables reverts back to normal. The last example with the bidi setting messes up selection for the whole page. MJ

2002030716 OS/2 I have same problem on some pages: e.g. http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=118899 (tab 7 of 7) but not on others: e.g. http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112101 (tab 5 of 7) I can't see any rhyme or reason to it.
It is a Bidi problem, but it also happens on UTF-8 pages.
Not NT only any more. OS needs update.
