    I'm not sure about other browsers, but using Chrome on Linux version Version 28.0.1500.71 I see the text of tabs being selected when I click on them (see attached screenshot).

    Here's how I have fixed it with CSS:
    li[role|="tab"] {
        -moz-user-select: -moz-none;
        -khtml-user-select: none;
        -webkit-user-select: none;
        user-select: none;

    Hello Joshua,

    Indeed, the tab text can be selected if the user holds down the mouse button and drags, instead of clicks. This is normal. Generally, we prefer to disable text selection only when it is required and this particular case has not been reported so far.
