Strange and annoying selection of text in Opera

  • I select a block of text on any site and release the left mouse button, I see the block of text selected by me, then I click on the left mouse button in any other place and drag coursor in any direction with the goal of selecting another block of text, but Opera highlights the whole text from the cursor and to the top of the page - it's very annoying 😞
    IE and Chrome highlight the text quite adequately.

  • Is your Shift key sticking? Shift-click is supposed to extend a selection.

  • @sgunhouse, Thank you!
    Shift key really helped, but it's still uncomfortable, because it will have to get used to ONLY for Opera. All text editors and browsers work adequately without the Shift button.
    Up to a certain version of Opera (unfortunately, I do not know which one) everything worked fine, and I do not get any sense and convenience in this "innovation". It seems to me that this is a bug that not fixed from version to version 😞
