STR:

  1. Load attached testcase in Firefox on Android (I'm using Fenix aka Firefox Preview, Nightly version)
  2. Long-press some of the text, and wait until the text is selected.
  3. Tap somewhere else to dismiss the selection.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3.

ACTUAL RESULTS:
The text isn't selected/deselected very reliably. Lots of the time there's just no effect.

EXPECTED RESULTS:
Reliable text selection / deselection.

TYLin, do you know if this is a known limitation of Accessible Caret & are there any related (or identical) open bugs on this?

Thank you for reporting this bug with the reduced test case. I'm not aware of any related bugs.

Note, in the original reporter's test case [1], the user can use double-tapping to select as an workaround on mobile.
