The question title links to itself but that makes it impossible to select text within the title any longer. In the screenshot below I was trying to select "Messageformat" for later entry in a package lookup query.
The solution is to select the entire text starting from outside the title, copy it, paste it in some editor, then edit to only the text you want. This is way more cumbersome than having to click the browser's refresh button (or Cmd+R/F5) instead of the question title. Does linking the question to itself save time overall?
