Steps to reproduce: (app code and test code)

Type or paste a very long selector in to the selector playground text input box. And yes, I know that using selectors that look like this is not recommended :)

The code for this is done in cypress-io/cypress#8509, but has yet to be released.
We'll update this issue and reference the changelog when it's released.
