User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:69.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/69.0

Steps to reproduce:

Stop to select the space after a word select.

And before the word.

Component: Untriaged → Selection
Product: Firefox → Core

I think this behavior is intentional because it's the default behavior in other Windows applications, like Notepad, Edge etc.
Has that changed in Windows recently?

(FYI, you can toggle the hidden pref "layout.word_select.eat_space_to_next_word" in about:config to change the behavior in Firefox.)

Severity: normal → minor
OS: Unspecified → Windows 10
Priority: -- → P4
Hardware: Unspecified → All

Still not working for 2nd image:

Strange that left space not appear anymore with or without that option.
