The following html snippet will cause Firefox to copy multiple lines to clipboard , when one intends to copy "Second Third" to clipboard only:

<br><strong>First<br></strong>Second Third

The following is required of the test case:
1. <strong> interleaved with <br>
2. space for "Second Third"

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have "<br><strong>First<br></strong>Second Third" into test html file.
2. Double click on "Second Third"
3. Copy selection to clipboard (CTRL-C)
4. Paste into any program
Actual Results:  
"FirstSecond Third" will be copied and pasted.

Expected Results:  
SecondThird to be copied and pasted only.
I believe this bug does not affect Firefox 2.x.

1. triple clicked required
2. simplified test case: <br><strong>First<br></strong>Second
