I have an IntelliMouse. The wheel button is set to Double-Click.

The bug:

When I use whe wheel button in location bar it invert only a part of the URL
typed in (only to the cursor position. Expl: http://bugzilla.moz). "Normal"
double-click works +/-fine.
bryner - Is this one for you?

The problem here seems to be that we don't honor the Windows settings for mouse
behavior that well.  I'm not really sure how to do that.  I'll check around and
see if anyone can help with it.

This works fine for me. Setting the middle button to double click selects whole
words as it should. Unsetting the option in the windows control panel reverts
to the default behavior as expected. Maybe this is a bug with selection in the
url bar?

ezh, bryner --- are you still seeing this on M13? I don't have an Intellimouse 
to check with. Thanks!

This is most likely a duplicate of a selection bug that existed at one time.  I
also don't have an Intellimouse, so I can't exactly reproduce this.  The fact
that it's the wheel button should be irrelevant.  But unless anyone has an
objection, I'll mark this one WORKSFORME.

I have it again after I have installed IntelliPoint 3.1.

I think there's some driver incompatibility.

I'm not sure why this bug stayed assigned to me- should be an editor issue, the
fact that your middle button is a mousewheel is likely not relevant.

"The fact that your middle button is a mousewheel is likely not relevant."

Yep, thats true. :) Today I had 2.2 installed all was working well - I buyed 
Intellimouse explorer today, so I DL and installed 3.1. Now I have the same 
problem, as I had when I had 3.x installed before I reinstalled my system.

could someone describe what the bug is here?  I think it has something to do with 
double-clicking in the url bar but I don't see a test case.  If I don't get a 
testcase soon I will be forced to resolve this as invalid..

I see this on 2000030516, winNT.  I am using the 3.1 drivers for the IntelliEye.  
I not only see this in the url bar, but on any text selection.  Setting the 
wheel click to act as a double click then wheelclicking on any selectable text 
selects the text from the last space up to the click point instead of selecting 
all the text from one space to another.   For instance

URL bar says http://www.mozilla.org.
Wheelclick on the m .
only http://www.m is selected when http://www.mozilla.org should be.

If i do a plain double click, everything is fine.

Yep. Now I tryed uninstall IntellyPoint 3.1 and installed IP 2.2 wheel 
double click works as it should. But when I reinstalled the bug is present.

Thanks to kerz@en.com for explaining this problem on english (I need some 
exercises in english :(), but I see it in URL bar too.

is this another case of the mouse moving very slightly while double-clicking?

This is not a dup of 23784.

Here we have troubles only with Intellipoint 3.x mouse drivers (this trouble is 
only in Mozilla).

I bet 1000$ under Linux there's no Intellipoint, but 23784 is under Linux. 23784 
 is about selecting word with dbl-clk, this bug is for selecting a word with 
a wheel, setted-up for dbl-clk.

Read my first bug description - "normal" dbl-clk works normal, but wheel does

I have insight into what may be the problem. I was just about to report this but
figured it'd be better to search for it, and viola, it existed. I've narrowed it
down to *speed*. I can reproduce the double clicking behavior that setting a
double click button does when I double click *really fast*, manually. Since the
Intellimouse does this very quickly, this is probably what the problem is.
Applies to all text as kerz said, not just URL bar.

nevermind, I deem my previous conclusion silly, and I was just experiencing the 
bug where double-clicking and slightly moving the cursor would select up to the 
cursor position. Nevertheless, extremely annoying, not a day goes by where I 
don't experience this.

Hey, I think this bug still exists and it's not a dup of bug 12764 because that
bug is only for linux.  Furthermore, as cleared up later, this bug can happen
from doubleclicking really fast without using intellimouse as a doubleclick
button, so the summary should be changed.  (see my comments in bug 91644 )
