In any version of Windows, the selection is preformed for a single word at a time, not for the whole line (as currently happens in Mozilla). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Press Alt+D to place the caret in the URL Bar 2. Press CTRL+Shift+Left Arrow Actual Results: The whole line is deselected Expected Results: Only the last word should be deselected (compare with IE, Windows Explorer and the Start->Run dialog) If these keyboard shortcuts don't collide with other shortcuts, please add them to other platforms as well.
wfm on XP Pro SP1 & Moz 2003022408. Note : the shortcut key to put the caret in the URL bar is CTRL+L and not ALT+D which is for IE. In Moz ALT+D works sometimes, but if you try it on this page it probably won't.
Always try a current nightly before submiting bugs. This onw has already been fixed. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 98546 ***
Check that you don't have a user_pref("layout.word_select.stop_at_punctuation", false); line (or similar) in your profile's prefs.js file. This should already work in 1.3b. I think you have a nightly build that predates the fix to this bug by about one day. :-)
