From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.6) Gecko/20011120 BuildID: 2001112009 In IE 5xx and Opera 5xx it is possible to select a piece of URL in the location bar by first clicking the location bar to activate it and then highlighting the wanted portion with mouse. In Mozilla this requires three clicks, 1) for activating the location bar 2) to get rid of the full address highlighting 3) highlighting. If you're not careful, you end up drag'n'drop pasting a duplicate address on the location bar Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.click the location bar once to activate 2.try to highlight a text portion, i.e. 'www' in the URL 3. Actual Results: nothing Expected Results: highlight a portion of text on the location bar

It isn't true for IE 5.5 (build 5.50.4134.0600) on Win32. It behaves exactly like Mozilla. Actually, Mozilla was made to behave like IE, after fixing bug 37587. Do we want to revert to the previous situation, again? UI Design must decide, once for all. Issues on selection in URL bar are covered in meta bug 62496.
