[FF4] Place cursor between text, apply any style: cursor drops

Reported by: MattMecham Owned by: fredck
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Core : Styles Version: 3.5.3
Keywords: Firefox Cc:

Description

To reproduce:

ckeditor.com/demo using Firefox 4. (Using FF 4.0.1 but reproducible in FF 4.0.0)

Type some text. For example "test".

Click anywhere in the text to place the cursor, for example after the "e".

Click on the font color menu and select a color, for example red.

The cursor drops down below the text and the cursor has the color selected.

Continue typing at the cursor returns as expected. Screenshot here: http://www.mattmecham.com/skitch/ckeditor-20110503-081933.jpg

I can confirm it happens with *any* kind of style, even when applying bold. When you start typing, the style is properly applied. Seems to be a brand new FF4 bug. Works well with FF3.6.

To reproduce it, it's enough to place a collapsed selection at at part of the text, except at the end of paragraphs.

FF4 felt down to the same level of FF2 in this ticket... it's enough to apply the same fix with have for it there.

This is already fixed on Firefox 5. Let's avoid adding browser specific hacks into our code.
