User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2 When I try to define text using the cursor in order to cut and paste (using Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V) it doesn't work. Moving the cursor over the text appears to be selecting it, but as soon as I release the mouse button the text reverts to the normal display and I can't select it. This happens every time with Firefox on my home machine but not on my office machine. It does not happen with IE or Opera. In attempting to reproduce it, I just noticed just now that it happens in the paragraph above this box listing a "bad example" and a "good example" of a report, but it does not happen in within the box I'm using right now. If I try to select that text, I can do it and I can also copy it to the Windows clipboard using Ctrl+C. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click on beginning of text to define using the left mouse button. 2. Move mouse to end of text to be defined. 3. Release mouse button. Actual Results: The backgound of the text turned blue as I moved the cursor over it, but when I released the left mouse button it reverted to normal. Expected Results: The background of the text I selected with the mouse should have stayed blue when I released the mouse button. Then I should have been able to perform cut and past operations on the selected text.
This works for me. Could you please test this with the lastest build of firefox and with a new profile. Please reopen if you have more information on how to reproduce.
