None of The Register pages work properly for this. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to a register article 2. Drag mouse over text on one line in the article 3. Right-click to paste in to XChat (version here: 1.8.1) Actual Result: 1. No selection occurs 2. No text is pasted Expected Result: 1. Mozilla should have highlighted my mouse selection on the fly 2. Selected text should have been pasted in to XChat. Additional Information: 1. Click in the text, then hold down shift and use the arrow keys does produce a selection that you can then use Edit->Copy to copy. However, this copy does not get pasted in to XChat 2. Selecting text in more than one line of text does work. I.e. > 1 line doed fire the selection up, 1 line on it's own doesn't. This bug has been present for months. I'm using daily builds of Mozilla with latest stable Glib/GTK/GNOME. Other selection events of one line of text works on other sites fine. It's just The Register that causes problems. Perhaps a font issue, since they seem to use something slightly unusual on their pages.
Nominating for Mozilla1.0. The site in question is quite popular in Europe, and not being able to copy text from the browser is pretty basic functionality, although this instance is still an edge case bug.
