#9111 confirmed Bug

Anchor displayed as inline-block in IE

Reported by: tiois Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: 3.0
Keywords: IE8 IE9 Cc:


When using a template that renders an anchor in display: inline-block, it's impossible to edit the content of this anchor. The problem occurs in IE8/9, not Firefox of Chrome.

The Source is :

<p><a class="file file_doc" href="#">Document PowerPoint</a></p>

The CSS is :

.editor .file {

display: inline-block; padding: 2px 0 2px 22px;


.editor a.file_ppt {

background:url(/bundles/projectfrontendcore/images/ul/icones/ppt.gif) no-repeat 0 1px;

  • Keywords IE anchor removed
  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

DUP of #8525.

As written in #8525

If instead of using the context menu the toolbar is used then it works correctly, as well as double clicking.

In fact, when I wrote "to edit" the content of the link, I meant to change the text in the anchor, I'm not trying to edit the properties of this link.

So, I don't think this issue duplicates #8525.

@tiois Thank you for providing more details.

To reproduce:

  1. Paste the below into Source mode and switch to WYSIWYG
    <a href="" style="display: inline-block;"></a>
  2. In IE8 or IE9 try to change the text of the link by clicking on it and typing text.

Result: You can't.

NOTE: In IE6-7 you can do it after you click on such link for the second time.
