Expected Results: All Strings should be selected in their entirety upon a double-click
double-click selects a single word. Words are separated by punctuation (characters like apostrophes, periods, dollar signs, etc).
This is set by a preference. Windows developers wanted it to stop at punctuation, so that's the default. If you want to change that, create a user.js (if you don't already have one) in your profile directory (wherever prefs.js lives now), and put this in it: user_pref("layout.word_select.stop_at_punctuation", false); Or just change the value of that pref in about:config (that will change it in the current session). Closing the bug as wontfix, since it's intentional. If you think this is the wrong default behavior for Windows, reopen it (and it will need to go to a windows ue person for discussion). Funny how that testcase doesn't specify anything about platform, so it's wrong for everything except Windows. That page claims to be owned by Terri Preston with an @netscape.com address. I wonder if that's a current address?
