This is an annoyance, interferes with the "fair use" of the text, and is pointless anyway since it is still possible to copy the text using the "View source" menu action. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load page or any sub-page of the above blog (wait for completion) 2. Attempt to highlight any paragraph 3. Actual Results: No text will be highlighted Expected Results: Text should have been highlighted; at least, an option should be present to prevent scripts from disabling highlighting.
Confirmed with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.3a1pre) Gecko/20100107 Minefield/3.7a1pre and the findbar finds no text.
