User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_4; en-US) AppleWebKit/533.4 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/5.0.375.99 Safari/533.4

As soon as a contenteditable is present on any given page, the behaviour of all other input or textarea of the page is altered in regards to "word selection by double clicking"

usually, double-clicking a word in a box would select that word.

Please look at the provided URL for a basic test-case expressing this bug.

This bug had been found in firefox 3.6.6 for Mac/Window and Minefield 4.0b2pre so I suspect it's core and affecting all versions.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. visit a page that has at least one contenteditable=true div
2. try selecting a word in an input by double clicking on it.
Actual Results:  
the word can't be selected by double or triple clicking wether the field has focus or not.

Expected Results:  
the word or parts of it should be selected by double-clicking.

default theme, please visit http://www.mathieusavard.info/bug/a.html for the basic test case.

I have a patch in the works for bug 686203 - not quite ready for Bugzilla yet - that should fix this too.
