Cannot Copy SVG Text
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/126.96.36.199 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20060111 Firefox/184.108.40.206 As per the SVG Spec, you must be able to copy text in an SVG (for accessibility, among other reasons). In MozSVG's implementation, you cannot copy text. This may be a function of the inability to select text or search for text, or it may not. Note that this is different than the ability to select text, or the abilty to find text using the search facility, for which I will file separate bugs. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load sample file 2. Try to search for a string that appears in both HTML and SVG and cycle to an SVG instance of the matching string 3. If seemingly successful, attempt to copy Actual Results: Text string is not copied to the clipboard. Expected Results: Text string should be copied to the clipboard. This is very important for accessibility and for many WebApps.
I can confirm that this bug is still present.
