Pushing off non-beta 1 issues
I am 99% sure this is a Text Selection thing. When you select text, it gets an xored rectangle behind it. Well, HRs get this blue border. You can prove this be selecting text either side of an HR - the HR gets blued.

Maybe a threshold on is needed on the minimum mouse movement needed to start selection after the left mouse button is pressed down.
This can wait till after beta push, setting to M15.
Summary: HR gets blue border when in active state → Selection should only start after mouse down + mouse movement threshold

I agree with the threshold thing. It's too easy to accidentally select one character in the location bar when you're just trying to place the insertion point.

*SPAM*: Changing the QA contact of all open/resolved Selection bugs from email@example.com to BlakeR1234@aol.com. After the many great years of service Eli has given to Mozilla, it's time for him to move on; he has accepted a position at Eazel. We'll be sad to see him go, and I'll do my best to fill his spot...

I see this on WinNT: (a) Mouse down on the location bar and move the mouse a tiny bit. Only the part of the URL to the left of the cursor is selected. (b) Double-click on a word in a web page and then move the mouse a tiny bit. Only the part of the word to the left of the cursor is selected. (c) Mouse down in the middle of a letter on a web page and move the mouse left or right one pixel. The letter is selected. Note that (a) would probably be fixed by fixing bug 62495, making clickSelectsAll trigger on mouseup rather than on mousedown.

The URL address at the top of this bug report no longer exist... I had been brought to this bug report by bug #163594 from firstname.lastname@example.org. Dbaron or reporter, can you verify if bug #163594 is a duplicate bug? Since that the URL of this bug report does not exist, so no idea of what that bug is like. However, bug #163594 showed the guilty party for that bug is due to bug #159207 and this bug report exist way before bug #159207 which make it unlikely that bug #163594 is a duplicate bug of this one...
Judging by this bug's description (comment 0), it's a direct dupe. Judging by this bug's summary (which is more up-to-date), it's not, in fact, a dupe, but fixing this would also fix the other bug. Pick your choice.
this seems to be fixed. I cannot reproduce the bug in comment 0 on build Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030925
As there is no testcase for a long time I close it as Invalid.

I'm not quite sure that everyone will agree with the INVALID resolution. Either this bug is just about the HR selection issue described in comment 0, and then this is a duplicate of bug 163594 and should be marked as such. Or it's a more general issue, and then it's valid (though perhaps actually an RFE) and not fixed. As far as I'm concerned, though, I don't particularly care. :-)
Changing URL to an equivalent page (it was just a standard apache generated directory listing).
and marking worksforme, which is true.
