Text in background windows should not be selectable
Text in a non-foreground window in FizzillaMach/2003021203 is selectable, but should not be. 1. Open a Mozilla window showing <> 2. Open another Mozilla window 3. Move the mouse cursor over text in the background window; note the cursor becomes an I-beam 4. Click and drag over said text Expected results: The background window should be brought to front and the click+drag otherwise disregarded. (The cursor should not change over text in background windows.) Actual results: Text in the background window is selected and the window is not brought to the foreground.
Summary: Text in background windows should not be selectable. → Text in background windows should not be selectable

This is mostly fixed after bug 340592. If you click and drag in a background window while the app is active, but we still won't bring the window forward. We don't select text, but we'll try to start a drag, even if there's nothing draggable. We probably want to bring the background window forward unless a real drag is beginning.
