User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0b12pre) Gecko/20110216 Firefox/4.0b12pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0b12pre) Gecko/20110216 Firefox/4.0b12pre

I cannot copy some text that is Flash-based (if I right click the text, one of the options is "About Adobe Flash Player") on the reported site.  I currently have Flash 10.2.152.26 installed.

The text I can't copy starts with "Requirements" and continues down to the e-mail address on the bottom.  However, the job title is also Flash-based and can be copied.

I do not know if this is a Flash bug or Minefield browser bug or is just the way the Webmaster coded the page, as I also cannot copy the text using Internet Explorer 9 RC.

Reproducible: Always

Broken in Chrome dev 10.x also, seems like a problem with the website.

Websites using Flash text like sIFR kinda suck sometimes.
