Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052912 Firefox/3.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052912 Firefox/3.0

Starting with Firefox3, a triple click does not select lines anymore but whole paragraphs. While I can see advantages for certain use cases, triple click is a very established use case which nearly all X11 apps use to select whole lines.

Therefore I propose to set browser.triple_click_selects_paragraph=false by default on linux - it can remain true on Windows and *probably* on MacOS, since they don't have triple-click=select-line support in most apps, so it's not so expected there.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Triple click with the mouse on a longer text paragraph
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
The whole paragraph is selected

Expected Results:  
Only the current line is selected, and the selection goes into "line-selection-mode"
