Chrome / Safari over typing link text issue

Description

If I visit http://ckeditor.com/demo in Chrome 34 or Safari 6.1 on the Mac (OSX 10.8.5) and place my cursor at the end of a link and start typing, it does not continue the link text. It does continue the link text if I do the same in Firefox 29.

If I do the same cursor position (end of link text) and hit backspace once and then start typing it still does not continue the link text. It does continue the link text in Firefox.

If I select the entire link text and then start typing the first character I typed becomes the new link text and all other characters after this are normal text. This works as expected in Firefox, all characters typed become the new link text.

This makes editing link text in these browsers quite difficult. It also makes editing link text with a length of 1 character impossible.

I have tested this in Chrome 34 on Windows 7 too. Same problem.

It actually depends (elements path shows where you are) and is caused by this issue http://dev.ckeditor.com/ticket/8195

If I do the same cursor position (end of link text) and hit backspace once and then start typing it still does not continue the link text. It does continue the link text in Firefox.

The only result I got was the same as here: http://dev.ckeditor.com/ticket/9146.

This is browser issue you can try it on editable element. Please see http://dev.ckeditor.com/ticket/9146.

@Jimmer303 I'm closing your issue as duplicate but thank you for reporting it as it has helped me to do little clean up.

Thanks, sorry I did search for the problem before I reported the bug but couldn't see anything. Obviously I didn't look hard enough :(

Is there anyway to re-input link text in Chrome or Safari without typing in the middle of the existing link text and trimming off the old text from the start/end of the link text after you are finished editing?

I cannot see another way to work around this problem.

No problem. Your ticket has helped me to clean up a little bit.

I'm sorry but I can't imagine it. For which of cases above you use this workaround or perhaps this is new problem?

Thanks for the reply.

I cannot use a workaround, except typing in the middle of an existing link and then trimming the old start / end text after I have finished typing.

As to whether it is a new problem I am not sure I am qualified to say yes or no.

I cannot seem to find any information on this site saying it is not new. I tried your support forum before posting here and got no reply - http://ckeditor.com/forums/Support/Chrome-Safari-over-typing-link-text-issue

Ok, now I think I know what you mean. You are trying to select whole link and then start typing to change its text. You are typing in the middle and then trim old text.

To answer your question - currently there is no solution for it. This will be fixed if we find solution for #9146 and #8195.

Thanks for the update ;]

Just a thought, why not add a link text input field to the link editor dialog, above the Link Type select menu, in the Link Info tab. That way you could double click the link in the editor, open up the link dialog and edit the link text there. That would be a workaround.
