User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:2.0b9pre) Gecko/20101224 Firefox/4.0b9pre Build Identifier: latest nightly Minefield on december 24 (time zone: 2) When a word is double-clicked not only the word is selected but also a space is selected Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Double click to this word. Actual Results: "this " is selected Expected Results: only "this" should be selected every time i have to delete the space, very unnecessary and boring and thus not user-friendly
not a bug. set layout.word_select.eat_space_to_next_word to false.
why not a bug?
Because apparently this is expected behavior on Windows. If you look at http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/modules/libpref/src/init/all.js the preference is set to false on all operating systems by default _except_ Windows and OS/2. Last I checked, this was the default Windows double-click word selection behavior.
