  1. Open a webpage. Google will work.
  2. Move to the line of buttons; google search, etc.
  3. Press home.
  4. Press shift+end. I hear: Google Search I'm Feeling Lucky selected
  5. Press shift+home. That text should be unselected, instead I hear nothing.

I followed all the steps, and while it doesn't announce unselected, when I press Control+C, the text that was selected is copied. Is it truly unselected? Is NVDA at fault?

- In browse mode, pressing shift+home after selecting forward now unselects to the beginning of the line as expected. (#5746)
- In browse mode, select all (control+a) no longer fails to select all text if the caret is not at the start of the text. (#6909)
- cursorManager: Fix selecting forward, then selecting backward without unselecting, then unselecting forward, and vice versa.
