Version: 60.2.0esr (64-bit)

Demo: http://jsfiddle.net/g9ojmrt8/

When a line's logical start or end is reordered to the middle, it can be quite hard to select the full line. Mouse dragging through the full line (in either direction)  only selects the line partially.

Example: <div>abc&#x05D0;&#x05D1;&#x05D2;123</div>

Mouse dragging through the line selects "abc" only.

Also note that if the text node ends with a collapsible space then dragging through selects the full line.


Background: I'm a Chrome developer working on bidi caret/selection issues (http://bit.ly/2xVMjdc). I'd like to know how Firefox sees this issue. Thanks!
