    Text and image selection at the bottom of web page fails in zoom modes >
    100%. You can easily reproduce this behavior on each page of this site.
    Simply set zoom to 150-200%, scroll to bottom and try to select something. Is
    it known problem? Possible to fix?

    Storm, I did as you suggested and am unable to reproduce the issue on
    webpages. Are you using Windows XP or Vista?

    Windows XP SP2. One little correction: double click selection working fine,
    but "mouse - dragging" selection from end to start of word fails. Pls try
    again: set 200% zoom mode, move to the end of page and try to select a word.
    Thank you.

    Thank you. It is reproducible. I've found when using ctrl+shift I'm able to
    highlight word or blocks of words on webpages. It's sporadic in selection
    using that method. I further found when using a Search index such as Live
    Search, I am able to highlight the text at the bottom using the same Zoom %
    (200) but am unable to select page numbers in sequence.

    Please excuse a duplicate post should there be one, but my reply was lost
    when I further researched the issue.
