User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:50.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/50.0
Build ID: 20161201181357

Steps to reproduce:

Have a textarea element and add a long string to it without spaces or special chars so it goes on multiple lines. For example:

<textarea style="width=10px;">ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff</textarea>

Try selecting the string by double clicking it.

It happens on both Linux FF (50.0.2) and Windows 10 FF


Actual results:

Double click on multi-line string selects only the actual line on which you are clicking. See the attached screenshot.


Expected results:

It should have selected the whole string spanning multiple lines.
