Description

STR:
1. View Recent Updates in new about:addons.
2. Show Release Notes for an add-on.
3. Try to select some or all of the text, the mouse end position is free, select one or more times.


Actual results:
It's easy to trigger the effect of clicking on a card and go to the details of the add-on. It seems that I have to place the mouse end point outside the card, and I can't use the text already selected as the starting point for the second selection.


Expected results:
Easy to select.

This section is definitely not great (even before the changes) but this is indeed annoying. The click handler [1] should be updated to ignore clicks in the release notes and the cursor should likely be updated when over this section as well.
