document.addEventListener('selectionchange', e=>console.log('sel change')) is still not working in stable 47 and beta 48
Have we not enabled the events yet?
(In reply to Olli Pettay [:smaug] (high review load, please consider other reviewers) from comment #4) > Have we not enabled the events yet? I don't believe we have enabled them yet. To do that we just need to set the dom.select_events.enabled pref.
Thanks for enabling it, could you tell me for which version it'll land for sure? I've a polyfill http://jsfiddle.net/crl/rk6f74tw/32/ but I'd like to use only when necessary
