Reported by: angell Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: 4.0 Beta
Keywords: IE Firefox Support Cc:


Environment: Windows 7/8, Chrome 28, FF 23

  1. Copy a URL from Chrome's address bar
  2. Go to Firefox and paste that URL into a ckeditor text field
  3. Immediately enter additional text (no spaces) after the URL

Result: The text you enter after the pasted URL becomes part of the text.

Real life use case: You enter in the text "Check out my website ( Here, the right side closing parentheses becomes bolded like it is actually part of the URL.

Only happens on Windows, and only from Chrome/IE10 to Firefox.

Problem can be reproduced from CKEditor 4.0 beta. It hasn't worked like that in CKEditor 3.x and started working that way in Firefox and IE9-11 from CKEditor 4.0 beta.

If you paste URL say from Chrome URL bar and start typing after it then text gets linked.

URLs don't get autolinked in Firefox but this problem can be reproduced with link dialog as well. Just insert link using link dialog, press right arrow and start typing. It has worked in CKE 3.x but stopped in CKE 4.x.
There are three other tickets that concern exiting link in Firefox: #8146, #10966 , #6680.

As a workaround on Windows in all these browsers user can use End key to get out of the link.
To get out of the link on MAC in Firefox user can use CMD+Right Arrow
Elements path shows where user is - after paste user is inside link and after pressing End selection is moved to paragraph.

NOTE: We had similar issue in CKE 3.x #5978. It was fixed then but it has reoccurred again in CKE 4.x.
