Mission is to select some of my google search results (links) in order to copy their urls using Firefox add-on Copy Selected links. It use to work that by pressing Ctrl I could select with mouse left button different links in search results but now it is selecting all previous links as well and I cannot have a control over the selections. I want only some of the links in google not all. Are you able to help me?

Hmm, when I experiment with that -- multi-selection within the Google results page -- the behavior depends on where the mouse button is pressed down. If I start selecting above a result in the center (horizontally) of the blank area, then the selection does not expand to include earlier content. However, if I start in the blank area to the left of a result, it selects results above as well. This probably is related to how Google laid out the page, but I don't use this feature so I haven't explored its idiosyncracies.

Hi rehanaaslam66, Google may serve different results to different users depending on what it knows about them, especially if you are logged in to a Google account. I think there is or was a way to turn off personalized results but I almost never search logged in, so I don't know where that is these days.
