#10949 confirmed Bug

[Blink Firefox] Readonly editor elementspath selection doesn't select as expected.

Reported by: Joel Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: 4.0 Beta
Keywords: Blink Firefox Cc:

Description (last modified by Jakub Ś)

When the editor is readonly clicking an element in elements path does not truly select it in Blink and Firefox.

  1. Go to
  2. Scroll down to the mission crew table and click to focus it
  3. Click "table" in elementspath
  4. The table is selected, but the selection color is gray. Notice that the copy icon is enabled.
  5. Press Ctrl-C to try and copy the selection
  6. Make the editor editable and try to paste or paste in some other program -> fail.

NOTE: This doesn't have to be table. You can select list or any other element. In blink and Firefox you won't be able to copy it. Blink informs you about it with system sound while FF does nothing.

Workaround: select the table with the mouse and copy it then (notice the blue selection instead of the gray one in step 3). This is really difficult to control though as the mouse selection is not accurate or easy. This is difficult when for example trying to copy long or nested tables.

@req I have modified your description a little bit as problem occurs in Blink (Chrome, Opera 16) and Firefox.
