In Mac OS, if you select text by double-clicking and dragging (sometimes called "click and a half"), the selection advances word by word. In Linux, using Gnome, I am only able to get this behavior in select applications, like Terminal and FireFox. Is there any way to get Thunderbird to have the same functionality/behavior?
It's doing that for me by default in Ubuntu 9.04. Tested it in both Firefox and Terminal. – djhowell Oct 12 '09 at 18:53
