It may be a bug in the editor, but since the editor is specifically written for Chrome, they probably aren't even looking at it. I encountered it when I first started editing and reluctantly switched to Chrome, and have never had a problem since. I use Chrome only for editing, so I don't have it loaded up with bookmarks or plugins that aren't related to editing or the forums.
The screen zoom level (Ctrl-0) is hugely important, regardless of what browser you're using because it screws up the zoom between what you see and where you click. That solves another 10% of the complaints. Now there's a potential issue with older routers choking on too many connections...caused by the editor, but it won't have any effect on people with newer or better equipment.
I can also see a huge difference in performance between my home computer, which is 8+ years old and only has 1 GB of RAM, and my work computer which is brand new and has 4 GB and a faster processor.
I run XP on both home and work machines...there's now 2 newer Microsoft OS's out there that may or may not be bug-ridden, plus a number of 3rd party Linux OSs and of course Macs.
There are so many variables, and certain combinations work perfectly and some may not work at all.
The one thing we know for certain is that the horizontal selection bug appears in Firefox.
