When using the Jira issue tracker, I'm mostly viewing tickets.
I often want to click on items in the text, or select words. I rarely want to edit a ticket.

If you click in the description area, an edit mode is activated:
This is incredibly annoying, as it breaks all the common ways I select text. It's also easy to accidentally edit a ticket when you really only mean to read it or select text.

How can I turn off this inline editing mode? Preferably on a per-user basis.
