  • Milestone set to CKEditor 3.2

We could try to understand how V2 handles the context menu, but I think there is no easy way for that as much probably this works well there because we use IE popups, not floating iframes like in V3.

If no easy fix could be found for the 3.2, the only solution would be having the selection styled while the context menu is opened, just like we do for the find dialog.

AFAIK that's the only way for it...

The patch emulates the blurred selection mark of other browsers on IE.

Funny. I was a little afraid while doing the change to mark the contextmenu as unselectable because it could have some drawback with regards to accesibility, but instead it has fixed this problem.
