Details

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/28.0 Iceweasel/28.0a2 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20131215004001

Steps to reproduce:

On https://www.google.com/search?q=%E7%84%A1%E5%B7%AE%E5%88%A5%E6%80%A7%E6%84%9B&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8 attempted to only copy some English words out of the middle of the links listed.

Note we are not talking about copying from the edges, but instead the middle.




Actual results:

The drag and drop effect as mentioned on bug 135410.


Expected results:

The large pointer motion while depressing left mouse is an unmistakable copy attempt,
It should be made to succeed, even though over a hyperlink, no?

This is not as dangerous as a assuming a link click, so it should be made to work, no?
This looks like a dupe of bug 50673
