I "think" (but don't take it as a fact) that it happens when you select some text while the page is still loading, everything will be ok but when the page finishes loading, it'll select everything and cannot be unselected other than doing the step above. This might be a gecko problem but I'm not so sure so I put it here since I only use firefox. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce:
this just happened to me on a background tab (so I wasn't selecting something or anything) ... this is critical, but unfortunately I don't know what is the cause nor how to duplicate that...
I'm still seeing this bug with the trunk, it's a shame I can't find a way to reproduce it
Confirmed. Happens to me (Mozilla 1.0.3)
