firefox_text_in_drop_down_selected.png

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:15.0) Gecko/20120426 Firefox/15.0a1
Build ID: 20120426030504

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open a page with select input element, https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/query.cgi is a perfect example.
2. Select (mark using mouse, I mean) a part of page which contains <select> elements. You can just hit Ctrl+A.
3. Observe that text inside select elements is marked just like regular text. This applies to expandable (single-select) lists too. This is already strange considering that this behavior is not observed in f.e. 10 version (and older, I assume).
4. Copying selection to clipboard ignores marked contents from <select> elements.




Expected results:

Either text in <select> elements should not be marked when selecting parts of page with it
or
marked contents from <select> elements should be copied into clipboard just like regular text.
