Description

3 months ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0
Build ID: 20170809204109

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open a HTML file containing: <ol><li><a href="http://localhost/">This is a link</a>.</li></ol>
2. Try to select the beginning of the text of the link, starting just before the link.


Actual results:

Nothing happens (nothing is selected).


Expected results:

The text should be selected.

Note: If one starts before the "1.", this works, but doing this is counterintuitive.
