Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Repro steps:

Start editing your Careers 2.0 profile. Select a field and notice help text on the right. Try to select the help text with your mouse.

Unexpected result: The text disappears as the focus leaves the text box you were editing

Expected result: I should be able to select this text. For screen readers, specifically Mac OS X's built in speech capabilities, it is necessary to select the text to be spoken.

This occurs in (at least) Safari 5.0.3

I can confirm this also happens in Chrome (10.0.648.133) on Windows. – fretje Mar 14 '11 at 17:58
We won’t be fixing this one immediately, it’s not a common use case. – Matt Sherman Sep 26 '12 at 20:42
