Is there an easy way to highlight a commit hash?

When I find the page for a commit I'm interested in I want to highlight the hash so I can copy it and paste it into a terminal. It's a link though so you can't highlight it properly it just drags.

When you hover over it the full thing appears just below but you can't highlight that because it disappears when you take your mouse off the link. It seems like Atlassian is playing a cruel joke.

You should be able to highlight the commit id and copy it, even if it is a link. Maybe your browser has a plugin or something that is causing an issue? Can you try it in another browser?

It's just as bad in Chrome. You can highlight it if you click at exactly the right place but if you click slightly to the right you follow the link instead and it's hard to get it right.

The link just links back to the page I was already on

Works for me but I can see why it might be little tricky clicking on the right place. Little things that can be frustrating :)
