User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0 SeaMonkey/2.48
Build ID: 20170706221156

Steps to reproduce:

1. enter (or copy) "" into Location Bar in Seamonkey browser
2. move cursor to  first "s" of the word seamonkey
3. press ctrl+shift+right cursor key

Actual results:

Seamonkey  2.48 Linux version:
all text between "s"  until end of URL is selected
Seamonkey 2.48 Windows 
text selection stops at next ".", only "seamonkey" is selected

Expected results:

Text selection with ctrl+shift+cursor rigth key in Linux version should select word "seamonkey" only, not complete url

This seams to be broken in Linux version only, windows Version works as expected.

SeaMonkey/2.53a1 (Nightly) does the same.

Note: Linux-version of Firefox (54.0) does NOT have this Bug, works as expected,
