System: Build 19991228 on WinNT 4 (SP 5) Overview: I am unable to select text on the above page. Test Case: Load http://www.zdnet.com/ . Try selecting any text in the central part of the page. Actual Result: No text gets selected, or some arbitrary text gets selected on some other part of the page. Expected Result: The text should get selected. Other info: Works fine on Netscape 4.x, IE5.x
this is the same pixley issue with floated tables. all the zdnet pages seem to have tables with aligned cells. pixley wont be able to get to this till after vacation. reassigning per troy.
Hmm. Most of the other selection bugs are better but I'm gonna keep this one for a bit. It still seems a bit hinky.
It seems fixed, more or less. At teast selection is working in http://www.zdnet.com/ . However, it is still not working in some of other pages such as this: http://chkpt.zdnet.com/chkpt/zdhpcom01/www.zdnet.com/anchordesk/story/story_4409.html Updating the URL field.
Changing milestone as this works well enough for M14
Target Milestone: M14 → M15
OK - another site where this bug is causing serious problems: http://www.php.net . You can't select the first para. In fact, if you go to the downloads link, you cannot click on any of the links. It is as if that area does not contain anything.
Mass-moving bugs out of M15 that I won't get to. Will refit individual milestones after moving them.
Target Milestone: M15 → M16
Bulk prioritizing bugs for correct milestones.
Target Milestone: M16 → M18
Resummarizing for easier bug-browsing.
Summary: Text not getting selected properly → Text can't be selected on some pages
All of these pages work fine for me. Marking WORKSFORME.

*spam* changing qa contact from firstname.lastname@example.org to me (BlakeR1234@aol.com) on 121 open or resolved (but not verified) bugs. sorry for the spam everybody, but most of these bugs would just remain dormant and not checked by QA otherwise. I'm not sure how so many bugs have nobody as their QA contact, but I suspect this is the fault of some sort of bugzilla corruption that happened at some point (most of these bugs are in the 20000-26000 range, and I don't see where in the activity log that QA contact explicitly changed to email@example.com) Anyways, sorry again for spam. If you really get annoyed, I'm usually available in #mozilla on IRC for torture.
QA Contact: nobody → BlakeR1234
This does not yet work correctly in the original URL http://www.zdnet.com/ - Try scrolling down till you come to 'ZIFF DAVIS MEDIA PUBLICATIONS' and then try selecting something below it. This is a pretty important page - so I think someone should have a serious look at it, preferably by beta3. Am using build 2000082108 on WinNT 4 SP 6a. Repoening bug and updating URL field.
I can select text on that page. However, there is bug 46594 that makes the page scroll to bottom when you start selecting text. Can you please confirm that this is the case you are seeing...
