Selecting just the text if the entire text block is also a link
Authored by: chsnyder on May 28, '10 05:47:18AM

Um, kinda works.

I can select the text, but the link target is downloaded immediately I release the mouse button (in Firefox 3.6), which is more annoying than useful. Yet this seems to work for other folks, so maybe I'm just doing it wrong.

I had the some problem once in a while. It looks like you need to hold the mouse just a little longer. There are also websites that use a JavaScript that still runs and opens/downloads a link regardless of whether you keep the option key pressed.
