Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20130324 Firefox/22.0
Build ID: 20130324031024

Steps to reproduce:

Selected text on a Windows 8 Desktop.
Noticed drag carets are 5 lines above the selected text. 
Copy menu also appears at same height.

As well, I believe drag carets should only be for the tablet forms (or when there is no mouse).

Would provide a screen shot but ALT and WIN keys both kill the copy menu and carets.

Can you provide specific steps to reproduce? Also, is this describing a bug in desktop firefox or metro firefox?
> Selected text on a Windows 8 Desktop.

Sounds like desktop Firefox, removing from Metro triage.

This may be metrofx running on the desktop. I think it's safe to resolve this out as invalid. aleslie3 if our assumptions are wrong please re-open with some clarification.

This used to happen consistently for me as well, but doesn't reproduce anymore after the latest update.
