double click on a point in the url in the location bar in Windows or Mac and it selects on word-boundary. triple click selects all.

on Linux, double click selects all, and there's no way to select on word boundary.

this is likely about the textbox, not the location bar. switched to Toolkit:XUL Widgets.

I confirm this problem on Firefox 28.0, using Linux Mint.

Test case: while I'm writting this comment, the URL in the location bar is
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=926249
and if I double click on "mozzilla" the selection becomes "https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=926249", but it should be just "mozzilla". On the other hand, if I double click in the same word in the example I'm writting on this text box, the word is selected as expected.
