Build ID: new trunk (tip) Stay with me here... (1) Go to http://www.mozilla.org/ (2) File | Edit Page (Ctrl+E) (3) If the Composer window is maximized, restore it so it's just a square in the middle of the screen (not necessary to reproduce, but makes the bug easier to see/understand) (4) Select some text. (5) While drag-selecting, move the cursor outside the window by going to the left or right. (6) Move the cursor back inside the window. Result: the old selection disappears. A new one is started from the left or right side of the window. I don't see this when I just paste a large block of text, so it might be specific to tables or something else...
It's worth noting that it's not when the cursor exits the window, but rather when it exits the editor; the selection disappears the second you mouseover the scrollbar.
Actually, I've been able to do it by just going out of the table. I'll attach a testcase.
Ah, you're right--the selection becomes discontiguous when you leave the table (left or right, still). Thanks!
Summary: Selection collapses in Editor when cursor exits window to left or right → Selection collapses in Editor when cursor exits table from left or right border
I don't see this with a 1/26 Linux build. Is it perhaps new on the 27th, or Win ME specific?
It does this in Win98SE too build 2001.01.27.08 Mozilla 0.7 exhibits the same behavior.
