Selecting just the text if the entire text block is also a link
Authored by: lukeandrews on May 27, '10 09:27:30AM

You can always select text that is a link if you start your drag slightly to the right of the end or to the left of the start. Place your mouse over the link, and move it slowly to whichever side until it changes from the link "hand" cursor to the regular arrow cursor. Once it does, drag back over the text, and presto: selected link text.

EXACTLY! No modifier keys or other voodoo needed!

I discovered this feature of Firefox while visiting a website that didn't allow for selecting links "from the side".
