Select Multiple Lines of Text in Firefox 3

Amit from technology weblog Digital Inspiration points out a new under-the-radar feature in Firefox 3: multiple text selection. Now selecting text in Firefox is similar to selecting text in most text editors—just select your first piece of text, then hold Ctrl (or Cmd on Macs) to select other pieces of non-consecutive text. It may not be a top 10 Firefox 3 feature, but multiple text selection may come in very handy when you're pulling quotes for research and you don't want to do it one piece at a time. While you're at it, be sure to enable multi-line pasting for input boxes.
