    I'm not sure if this is the 'norm' for mac, and it doesn't do much harm, but it just makes me feel like 'it's not working properly'....

    Whenever I right click on anything, (more often than not, it's a link), it highlights the whole link... For example, I see a web link, right click it to open it in a new tab, and it highlights the link (and remains highlighted).... It's mildly annoying (or maybe I'm just being OCD) when you're reading a Wikipedia article or something and you're constantly opening links in new tabs and you have a random highlighted word.

    Is this the same for everyone?

    Um. This isn't the norm. My computer didn't do this until today and 3 other people that have MBPs have verified that their's don't do this. How do I make it stop? Sorry if I managed to miss a newer thread about this issue.

    nobody ever got an answer here http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1090622

    i notice if I right click text, it highlights the word, but frankly I don't remember if it's always done this or not.

    It happens on my Snow Leopard hackintosh install FWIW.
