Copying with CTRL-C seems to copy an empty string to clipboard. Paste works like normal. This problem somehow disappeared for the moment but definitely existed for few runs after DL-ing M14.

Did some more checking. After clicking in window showing html, copying does not work anymore. For now I could reproduce it if local file is loaded. Also it seems that cursor when setting focus is always set initially at beginning and only after at mouse position.
This sounds like a duplicate of 29004, which has been fixed in M15. I'd suggest checking in an M15 build if you'd like to be sure.
Mitja@zejn.si - given elig's comments, are you still seeing this problem with recent builds of Mozilla? Gerv
Checked it. The copying bug is definitely fixed. The flickering of cursor however is not fixed. I do not know if this is considered as bug or feature. The action to reproduce it: make a double click with first click on different position then the second. You will notice cursor briefly showing at begining of edit box.
Yep, I do see that. Rewriting summary and downgrading to Trivial. Gerv

I guess I'm not sure this is really a bug. Looking around in Windows it seems to be common practice that in the middle of a doubleclick you first do that action associated with the single click. That's all this is. But I just deliver the events so I'll let the person who does cursor control make the final call on this one. I believe that is mjudge.

I agree with joki. I am assuming his interpretation is correct so I am going to resolve this bug as INVALID (since we want it to work that way). Mitja or others--if you are seeing a different flickering, please reopen.

I still think it is a bug. This sort of behaviour is not seen elsewhere (Netscape 4.7, Windows Start-Run, ...). Double click is usually a special message and is not the same as click (AFAIK).
