For text selection to work on TBA, dom.w3c_touch_events.enabled needs to be set to 1 or 2. There could be more preferences that need to be adjusted for TBA.

Not really related but network.dns.blockDotOnion is currently set to true in TBA. It should be changed to false.

Ignore my last comment.

We should correct this in the alpha release (but not necessarily first alpha). Indeed, text selection is buggy/does not work in my test builds. However, seeing dom.w3c_touch_events.enabled doesn't solve the problem. I think more investigation is needed here.

@ sysrqb, you need to restart TBA for it to take effect.

Okay. I know I tested this before and it didn't work, but maybe it required starting the app and I didn't do that (?). In any case, setting that pref does seem like a fix. The pref is used at dom/events/TouchEvent.cpp:196

I have a branch for review: 27256.

Thanks towiw.
