// Find out whether we're doing line or paragraph selection.  If browser.triple_click_selects_paragraph is true, triple-click selects paragraph.  Otherwise, triple-click selects line, and quadruple-click selects paragraph  (on platforms that support quadruple-click).

OO.o support quadruple-click.  I'm going to take a look at it.
Looking at GTK2/GDK source code, I found out that it doesn't support quadruple-click.  Is it acceptable to do xlib hacks to get it work?
You man GTK2/GDK can't report quadruple clicks?

If so, an xlib hack is probably OK.
It seems like it could be a bad idea to go against OS conventions for click count.  See http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapi/2006May/0057 (and the testcase in bug 227328) for why.

Closing GTK2 related bugs since we removed GTK2 support at the beginning of 2018 in bug 1278282. Probably best to open a new bug in the unlikely event that any of these are still relevant.

This is basically still valid, since GTK still increments clickCount as 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, etc.

I'm happy with it being closed given comment 3, though.
