Do this: - go to the mozilla page - click and hold on some piece of text halfway down in the right-hand (white) area - drag down through the white area to select - move left into the menu (black) area - drag up through the black area (notice that the selection goes from the bottom to the drag point -- seems weird) Now here's the tricky part: - if you drag right back into the white area below the point you started and let go, you'll have selected the text in the white area from the start point to the end point, but... - if you drag to the right back into the white area above the point where you started and let go, you'll end up with all sorts of weird highlight artifacts Double clicking on a line at this point will de-select most of the line, and select the word that you double clicked on, but anything in a different font or style will stay selected.

I see this on Mac (artifacts as you drag-scroll selection though not all of the examples warren cites); reset to all platforms. Reassign to email@example.com; reset component to selection
Reassigning to firstname.lastname@example.org, he has a fix for this in his source tree.

Looks good. Thanks.
QA Assigning to self; this is a Selection bug.
I'm not sure if I understand exactly how to reproduce this bug. But, since Warren says it's fine with him, I'm rubber-stamping as verified. Corruption upon drag-scrolling (Linux/Mac OS only) is covered by 15384.
