Bug 8283 concerned a crasher because the selection wasn't being initialized properly -- a selection existed but hadn't ever been set to anything. We need to do two things: 1. Don't let selection Collapse/Extend crash just because it hasn't been initialized 2. Set the selection to the beginning of the document in the PresShell (the fix for 8283 was to do this in the editor, but it really should be happening in the Pres Shell when the selection is initialized, not only in editor mode).
Per a request from Selection and Search component eng (mjudge) and qa (elig), moving all "Selection and Search" bugs to new "Selection" component. Original "Selection and Search" component will be retired.

Decided that it was better to let selection handle that, so I added code to make selection more robust so it won't crash when it hasn't been properly initialized. The editor is initializing the selection to the beginning of the document, but the pres shell doesn't really need to do that.
I'll verify this myself -- it's really a code-level issue.
