    Double clicking on a word on a webpage
    This is true in both IE and FF:

    I double click on a word to highlight it - and the space after the word always gets highlighted too.

    I have to click and drag to get the word without the space.

    Why is this?

    Can I fix it?

    You can double click then hold shift and hit the left arrow. This will select the whole word... though not perfect I agree.

    I don't think you can fix it because it's how it's meant to work :/

    Maybe Firefox extensions? :)

    Apparently it's hotwired into MSHTML
