I don't really know what's that code supposed to do, but the fact that removing an iframe from the DOM causes problem has been a long known problem, and I think that at least webkit is also affected.

I wouldn't waste too much effort on it.

  • Milestone changed from CKEditor 3.1 to CKEditor 3.x

Some research could be done here on spare time, but no hi-pri because of it for now. This is a browser limitation

This issue was duplicated in #8487

I have managed to reproduce it in IE9, Webkit, Firefox and Opera.

From CKEditor 3.1.1 when you switch to source and back you are able to type again.
