Build ID: 2000080809 Steps to Reproduce: (1) Load XBL Demo #2 (Rollover Madness) from the Debug menu. (2) Choose Edit | Select All and note that you can select the text of the div if the mouse isn't over it (and it's not in the rollover state) (3) Now put the mouse over the div so its styling/borders change and try to select the text. Result: the text is unselectable. Note also that it simply can't contain a selection at all -- if you right-click while the mouse is over the div and you press L (the access key for Select All in the context menu, the demo explanatory text will get selected, but not the text contained in the div. But then if you mouseout of the div, the text is selected.
OK, it's not even that the text isn't being selected (it is, since you can copy it), just that the selection isn't showing up. cc'ing simon
Summary: Can't select text contained in div → Selection of text contained in div isn't visible
I have an even better case. I'll probably make it XBL Test #6... it looks like anonymous content doesn't get selected... possible an assumption somewhere in the selection code where it walks the content model instead of the frame tree.
*SPAM*: Changing the QA contact of all open/resolved Selection bugs from firstname.lastname@example.org to BlakeR1234@aol.com. After the many great years of service Eli has given to Mozilla, it's time for him to move on; he has accepted a position at Eazel. We'll be sad to see him go, and I'll do my best to fill his spot...

setting to m19, p2 and adding correctness keyword
Severity: normal → major
Priority: P3 → P2
Target Milestone: --- → M19
This should not be fixed for 6.0... it's not that big a deal.
moving to future
Target Milestone: M19 → Future
the problem is that the frames are being redrawn and selection is not being "refreshed". when we get a new focus event we refresh the selection to "reset" the frames that have the selection bit on. this should be easy to fix. i am assigning to hyatt. he may not fix it but he will know where this rebinding/change of frame hierarchy is taking place. feel free to contact me to sit down and help

WFM (build ID: 2003042608) on Win98 following the "steps to reproduce" from the original bug report. Maybe this got fixed as a side effect of another bug fix. :)
