This will cause problem on some translation software, such as StarDict, which monitor selection to see the user action changes. All gtk2 widget will clear the selection when it is unselected, so I hope firefox can follow this strategy too. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Is this a bug? gnome-terminal's behaviour is the same.
