--- Comment #5 from Alexey Proskuryakov <ap at webkit.org> ---
Firefox in particular doesn't implement the highlighting behavior at all - not even when right-clicking on plain text. This is a violation of macOS platform behavior, so in my opinion that's a bug.

The behavior on attached screenshots is not user friendly indeed. And perhaps it's fixable in WebKit with a more targeted fix - at least the double-painting is clearly wrong.
