Hi,

Until just recently, I could select text in Firefox using the Shift key (selecting text from the cursor's current position to the point where you click); now it doesn't work, and I think it's an Adblock bug.

I noticed this about a week ago, and I've just now gotten the chance to go through my Firefox extensions, one-by-one, to find out which extension is the culprit. I deactivated Adblock, and all of a sudden things worked right again!

Any idea what would be causing this?

probably won't help you much, but I have adblock installed, and I don't have the problem you've mentioned

You are seeing the effect of Adblock function called quickblock. You can toggle quickblock modes by pressing Ctrl-Shift-K, they rotate

Full -> Partial -> Disabled

You can see the current mode from the underline status of the word "Adblock" in the browser statusbar. Quickblock mode is saved, so you only need to set the desired mode once.

For more information, search this forum for the word quickblock.

In my own testing (Firefox 1.5.0.3, WinXP, Adblock v.5d3n42) the text selection mode you mentioned works perfectly if quickblock mode is either partial or disabled, but it does not work if the quickblock mode is full.

Ah, yes.

That explains it -- it worked for me because I have no underline.
