comment Disable sync on each bookmark change
Why the downvote? This is a valid problem, and I've outlined the steps that I've taken to resolve the issue which did not help. How might I improve the question?

comment Turn on the link hover statusbar in Google Chrome
I've had the issue on Kubuntu Linux. Disabling hardware acceleration resolved the issue for me.

comment Window Manager vs. Desktop Environment vs. Window System? What's the difference?
user113907 mentions: "X11 is the window system (the thing that draws the windows on the screen)". You mention: "X11 is a network protocol". Can this be reconciled?

comment Disable the `onselectedtext()` Javascrip method in Firefox
Thanks. I'll see if I can adapt that to Firefox for the general case (not just Quora).

Thank you mvark. I suppose that you run this bookmarklet on the known-affected site each time that you visit it? One of the pages that is affected is Quora.

comment Mouse selection based on initial mouse movement direction
@Hastur: You are right, Chrome does not suffer this either. Open Office Calc suffers the problem when dragging to the left but not when dragging to the right.

comment Mouse selection based on initial mouse movement direction
@Hastur: Yes, however the issue is that the entire process (click, drag, release) happens in one fluid motion with no stop-check-verify stages in between. That is why the situation is frustrating: the fact that sometimes the wrong part is selected means that we need the whole stop-check-verify procedure. Since the user expressed intent from the beginning (direction of initial drag) it should be possible for the system to compensate.
