I can reproduce this on Beta.

1. Go to
2. zoom into some text
3. Select a word
4. Rotate the device in landscape mode

Aurora and Nightly have a different behavior where the handles are removed

We discussed this on IRC, but for the record, it looks like we just need to uplift bug 764467 to fix this problem.

Sorry for the delay, bug 764467 has been uplifted to beta now so this should be fixed in the next beta.
