 $('.select').mouseleave(function () {

Altho you might wanna try:

 $('.select').blur(function () {

And as per your question in title

$('.select') /* This will select every single element
    that has the class "select" */


$('#editor1') /* This will select ONLY the first
    element that has the id "editor1" */

And inside any event or func call on an element, $(this) represents the element called:

$(".select").blur(function(e) {
    $(this) // represents the current element losing focus
