Not so sure if this is done by design or if it is a regression.
Sorry for the confusion... I see the same behavior in Firefox 2. Odd, I must have mistaken this behavior with Operas.
So this a an enhancement request? Because I see this behaviour also in Firefox 1, so it is not a (recent) regression. Please close this bug if it is not an enhancement request.
Severity: major → enhancement
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Actually, I am confused now. Selection does stay for other pages. It is just bugzilla...
This WFM now.
