Exact same problem here.  Except my selected state disappears in half a 
second.  The motion required to grab it is almost a double-click.

My first fix was to change the default ImageSize to something larger.
I think the required fix was at Edit->Preferences->Graphics 
options->Image bounding box->Image size.

When I need a different plot size, I usually pass an explicit ImageSize 
to my plotting functions.  e.g. Plot[Sin[x],{x,0,10},ImageSize->400]
