hi... for months now i am struggling to get mouse selection in urxvt to work reliably. Its just totally frakked.
have a look what it always does for me:
Anyone a clue what this is? can it be fixed? Blockselect works fine, just normal selecting is not.

I've got that as well, pretty annoying indeed!
I haven't got the time yet to try and solve it myself though...
That's odd. That looks like the right mouse button behavior, not left. Do you get something different with the other button?
You probably have somethink like

urxvt is probably confused as to whether you want to click on a link for your web browser or select some text. I just fixed this for myself by adding the following to my .Xresources file.
Now I can use mouse button 1 to select text, and the middle button to launch a web browser for a URL. I always thought that the middle button was button 3, but my .Xresources is as above and my middle button launches so whatever is going on is ok by me.
Note: I also have
in .Xresources as well.
