--- Comment #5 from Trevor Parscal <tpars...@wikimedia.org> ---
The selection of the following line is different than selecting the text on the
line. If you choose to select just the text, you will get the behavior you are
looking for. If you select the line and it's break (or empty lines after it)
then you will get the behavior you are reporting as a bug.

This is not a bug, it's doing exactly what it should. However, it may be
valuable to revisit how we can better communicate what is selected and how to
achieve the desired result to the user.

Unfortunately, we have limited control over selection because we use
ContentEditable, which is provided by the browser. The selection of a line and
it's break may be something we can disable, but likely there will be negative
effects on user experience and browser compatibility.

Marking as invalid, since this is not a bug, but a known feature. I'm happy to
discuss the UX impact of this feature and possible changes that could improve
the situation on a different, enhancement, bug.
