Additional information: I tried it on Firefox 23 and Firefox 24 Beta from Google Play; My device is Asus Nexus 7 3G (first generation); Installed OS: Android 4.3 (Baseband version: 1231_0.18.0_0409; Kernel version: 3.1.10-g1e8b3d8 firstname.lastname@example.org #1 Tue Jun 11 23:51:41 PDT 2013; Build Number: JWR66V)
I can reproduce this on Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Android 4.1.1) on the latest Nightly 08/13 I've installed on older build and both text selection and context menu appeared.
Confirmed Fx 32 on Nexus 7 2012 Android 4.4.4 It means I am unable to copy a (coloured blue but non-clickable) URL from an RSS file. (It doesn't display RSS files like the desktop version of Fx - bug or by-design?) Example - the mp3 files here: http://www.afolksongaday.com/?feed=rss2
Workarounds and alternative behaviors: * Subscribe to the feed using the Home Feeds add-on. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/addon/home-feeds * Use view-source to get a highlighted plain-text version of the feed. view-source:http://www.afolksongaday.com/?feed=rss2 allows me to select text.
Pruning some old bugs obviated by new Core/Layout AccessibleCaret implementation, or being no longer observable. (Please re-open if appropriate.)
Still able to reproduce. Firefox for Android 43.0 (20151214163750)
I'm sorry if I wasn't clear. The new AccessibleCaret feature is currently available in Nightly/46 and (iirc) targeted for release in 47. Testing in nightly confirms this will be corrected.
Looks like it was fixed in Firefox for Android 48.0b1 (20160607191837). Not sure why Bugzilla doesn't let me change the flag to Resolved/Fixed (I don't see this combination), so I'm going leave as it is
