A reproducible case I've found is when the direction of a paragraph is set to RTL, and there's some LTR text following some RTL text. This only happens for me in Firefox 2. Firefox 3 alpha 1 doesn't seem to suffer from this problem. I'm filing this bug to make sure that this problem is intentionally fixed in the trunk code (and is not the side-effect of another bug fix, which may break in the future) and to see if it's possible/feasible to migrate the fix in Firefox 3 back to a Firefox 2.0.0.x release. I'll be attaching a simple test case soon. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: A sample can be observed in the provided URL, which is a Persian RTL document. 1. Navigate to <http://www.roozonline.com/archives/2007/01/001717.php>. 2. Below the first picture, try to double-click on "Men" in "Children of Men". 3. Below the last picture, try to double-click on "Idiocracy". Actual Results: In step 2, the last Persian word, and the "Children of" part gets selected. In step 3, the last Persian word gets selected. Expected Results: In step 2, "Men" should be selected. In step 3, "Idiocracy" should be selected. about:buildconfig Build platform target i586-pc-msvc Build tools Compiler Version Compiler flags $(CYGWIN_WRAPPER) cl 12.00.8804 -TC -nologo -W3 -Gy -Fd$(PDBFILE) $(CYGWIN_WRAPPER) cl 12.00.8804 -TP -nologo -W3 -Gy -Fd$(PDBFILE) Configure arguments --enable-application=browser --enable-update-channel=release --enable-official-branding --enable-optimize --disable-debug --disable-tests --enable-static --disable-shared --enable-svg --enable-canvas --enable-update-packaging
This is a duplicate of bug 246482, which is indeed fixed on trunk. This will not be fixed on the 1.8 branch - only security and stability bugs are fixed there.
