How can I make the fuzzy select global in GIMP, so that it selects all of a certain color and not just contiguous regions?

For example, if I drew multiple red squiggles, how could I easily select them all?

Shift + O or Tools -> Selection Tools -> By Color Select

For more information please view the Gimp Documentation, section 2.6 select by color.


GIMP has a tool that selects by color. The icon looks like three squares stacked that are blue,red and green and to the left is a yellow pentagon pointing in between blue and red.
