Milestone: CKEditor 4.0.2
Owner: Piotrek Koszuliński deleted
Status: assignedconfirmed
Version: 4.0.2 (GitHub - master)4.0 Beta

I wasn't right that this is regression after 4.0.1. I was able to reproduce this bug long before 4.0 Beta.

Yes, I was just checking this.

Problem can be reproduced from CKEditor 4 beta in Opera only.

Weird thing is that on latest master I don't get this error in console. I'm able to get it in version but not in master. List isn't inserted so either this is correct behaviour and was fixed or error is simply being silently caught on latest master.

Perhaps you've got the same problem as me with useless Opera's console. It doesn't switch with you when you change tab (I guess you were testing master on other tab than It stays on the old one, so you don't see that error has been thrown. I'm nearly sure of this because otherwise list button would work. Opera Dragonfly is the most ridiculous tool I've ever seen...

So after switching between tabs open "tabs" combo (3rd button from the right) and pick "select active window".

Learning all the time:) Yes closing and reopening Opera Dragonfly proved that this error is thrown in master as well.

Another use case which throw this error (Chrome):

  1. Open image2 sample with following code:
    <figure class="image" style="float:left">
        <img alt="Saturn V" src="assets/image1.jpg" width="200" />
        <figcaption>Roll out of Saturn V on launch pad</figcaption>
  2. Click somewhere in the editor but not on image (to prevent focus it).
  3. Hit Enter

Result: There is an error in console: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'isContextFor' of null
