I can't use the select text function when (in portrait mode) in the web browser. I have a htc desire. Try searching for something in google (any search box) in a browser. If you want to edit that text string, I can't use the select text in non landscape mode. When I hold down my finger, I get the triangle under the position, I then select text, after that I can't re-select. If i was in landscape, the text box open in new window, I can then select the end position to select text. Can you use select text in a web page's search area?
