Ubuntu – How to select (& copy) only a part (in the middle) of a linked text


Example link:

The artist John Doe shows us his cat!

I want to copy the text "John Doe" only.

It should work while holding Alt (according to this and this answer), but for me this would move the whole window instead. Am I doing something wrong? Has Ubuntu resp. Ubuntu’s Firefox a different key to allow this?

Best Answer

WinKey+Alt+Click works for me most of the times, although I'm not on Ubuntu, but on another Linux distro. WinKey is that key branded with the Redmond company logo.
