When opening a message in inbox, all text is selected.

When opening a message in inbox, all text is selected.

When I open any message in my inbox, the message comes up with all (everything) selected.  It’s not a major issue, but it looks strange.  A mouse click in blank space and the selections go away.  It did not act like that in the past.  Is this action intended?  Or, can I revert it back to the way it was?

PS:  works this way in my mailbox on my computer - as well as my wife's mailbox on HER computer.

Strange, but the problem went away on it's own.

As I mentioned in my original post, this problem was observed on two different computers, using different yahoo mail accounts (mine and my wife).  Yesterday when I posted, we had both been having the same anoying issue for about a month (not sure).  Only thing in common I could identify was we both use Firefox, 58.0.1 and 58.0.2.  Both computers had been restarted many times.

 

Well, today the issue is gone - for both computers.  I have no idea why as we have not made any known changes.  I didn't notice any auto updates, nothing.

 

I am happy the issue is gone.  At least if it returns, I have it documented here.  Next time I will try multiple browsers.  Thanks all.
