Originated from the Chromium bug tracker, see http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=3159
If I go to a message and select New Windows from the options on the top right I get a new window and select with shift-pageup/pagedown no longer works.
Add OK or FAIL after other browsers where you have tested this issue:
Firefox 3: OK
IE 7: OK
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Open GMail
2. Select a message
3. Click the New Window link to the right of the message display
4. Click Reply
5. Copy in a large amount of text
6. Use Shift+Ctrl+PgDown to attempt to select all of the text
When composing a Gmail message (in Chrome/Windows), Shift + Page-Down
doesn't select text (neither does Shift + Page-Up). Shift + DownArrow or
UpArrow does select text. IE and Firefox allow the Shift + PageDown method
to select text.
What is the expected result?
Text should be selected.
What happens instead?
No text is selected.
this bug only occurs for rich-text content. if the content is plain text, the content is correctly selected.
FWIW, I cannot reproduce this in Mac Safari 4.0.3.
> 6. Use Shift+Ctrl+PgDown to attempt to select all of the text
The rest of bug description doesn't mention Ctrl.
AFAIK it's a PC-only bug. I can reproduce it on PC Safari.
This is the same cause as 18819.
