Trunk firefox, on OS X 10.4.5 (does this happen on other platforms as well?) To reproduce: 1. Select some text on a web page 2. Drag the selection and drop it somewhere in the middle of the page Results: The selection disappears! Expected results: Unless I click somewhere else to un-select the selection, the selection should stay. This is standard OS behavior (at least on Mac OS X and Windows AFAIK)
This is worksforme with: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060216 Firefox/1.6a1 I can't drop the text anywhere inthe webpage (except text inputs), and the text selection stays after trying to drop the text.
Anyone still see a problem? If so can you help narrow the regression window?
Note, this may be OS X only. It is still appearing. I just tried it in a 20060423 nightly Minefield build. Just select some text, drag it a few centimeters away (somewhere where the drag will be rejected - where you can't drop it). It does *not* appear in Camino (!). So either it's carbon-only, or some chrome code is doing the unselect when the drag fails.
Moving to XUL in the hope that someone will look at it from a toolkit/chrome perspective.
Uri, you are on a Mac, aren't you? Can you reproduce this bug?
(In reply to comment #5) > Uri, you are on a Mac, aren't you? Can you reproduce this bug? > Yes, I can reproduce it: on trunk, in 22.214.171.124, and also in 1.0. Not sure why this was marked as a regression.
Another to close?
WFM in FF 47a on OSX 10.11.x Selected text remains highlighted after a failed drag.
