Steps to reproduce

  1. Select only ‘旅立つ’ (which is a separate word) on ‘旅立つふたりを描きました’

Expected

You should be able to select it as you can on Firefox and Chrome

Actual

Edge forces auto-selection so that user can only select the whole ‘旅立つふたりを’

Explanation

旅立つ/ふたりを/描きました
Traveling/two/I drawed

Japanese sentences have no spaces between words and this is causing unexpected behavior on Edge.
