Click the following menu sequence:

	Cell -> Default Output Format Type 

If it is set to "OutputForm", then that explains your problem.  Set it
back to "StandardForm".  For existing cells, you'll need to select the
cell and then do the menu sequence

	Cell -> Convert To -> StandardForm.

This should make the output cell's contents selectable.
