typing-deletes-highlight: preference variable

Default value: 1

If this variable is 1, pressing a self-inserting key like "j" while text is highlighted deletes the highlighted selection, replacing it with the key. Pressing <Backspace> simply deletes the text. If this variable is 0, a highlighted region isn't deleted. If this variable is 2, deleting highlighted regions happens only at prompts.

If you set this variable to zero, you may wish to set the insert-default-response variable to zero also. Then Epsilon won't automatically insert and highlight your previous response at various prompts.
