#10791 confirmed Bug

It is possible to write in hidden elements in IE 9+.

Reported by: Daazku Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Core : Selection Version: 4.0
Keywords: IE9 IE10 Cc:


It seems that in IE10 (at least) you can write in hidden elements that have innerHTML !== ; If the said element is contenteditable:false it is worse because you cannot get out of it.

It may relate to this:

Test case:

PS: I discovered the problem because I use an element (<span contenteditable="false" style="display:none">&nbsp;</span>) just before a space holder that is removed on click and on IE the users could not write... It may suggest a cursor positionning problem. PSS: No problem in chrome.

Problem can be reproduced from CKEditor 4.0 in IE9-10 in inline editor only.

Put test.htm file in samples folder and open it in a browser. Next click inside each editor and try to write something.

  1. Iframed editor works
  2. inline editor with non-empty and invisible span doesn't work.
  3. In this span it is only possible to write after pressing enter <span style="display:none">&nbsp;</span>
  4. In this span it isn't possible to write at all <span style="display:none" contenteditable="false">&nbsp;</span>
