Browser issue Select-to-quote doesn't work on Firefox for Android

On mobiles, we use/need the "selectionchange" event to detect things like moving the selection handles around. This is implemented by Webkit (and Webkit-derived) browsers and IE, but not FF. See the bugzilla request for it: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=571294

So essentially, FF has a "best approximation" based on some mouse-based handlers, but they don't fire like that on the mobile version.
