We discussed this at the Summit at length.  I'm going to use this bug as a tracking bug for the platform/Gaia work that needs to be done to support this.

By default, b2g won't send mouse event to child process if touch event has sent to child process successful. Unfortunately, text selection need handle by mouse event only. So text selection is not work on b2g except url field in browser app (because this url field is in b2g process).

We have few options here:
First, modifying selection code to support touch event.
Second, Sending mouse event from parent (current WIP patch uses this solution)
Third, Synthesize mouse event on child process.

Ehsan, what do you think?

You should probably file that as a separate bug that blocks this one. Per ehsan's comment (comment 1) this is a tracking bug.
