You can hold Alt down while selecting to disable drag'n'drop.
a) no I can't, my window manager takes Alt. (KDE2 kwin) b) this doesn't explain the weird beginning of line behaviour on this particular page.
No dups found, marking NEW. Could it have something to do with the link being inside a <table>? If so, this might be related to bug 54418.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
this link is in a table of 0 with. selecting to the "left" of the link to start the selection snaps the selection to before the TABLE. we cannot avoid this since we do want people to be able to select whole tables. exactly the same thing happens on IE if that means anything to whomever reads this comment.
