#12151 confirmed Bug

[IE11] The anchor tag text is being replaced when the link is edited

Description

The href value replaces the text value of the anchor under certain circumstances in IE11.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Either click the 'Link' icon in CKEditor and enter a url or enter an anchor tag directly in the Source of CKEditor (ex: http://www.yahoo.com)
  2. Click the Source button in CKEditor
  3. Change the text of the <a> but not the href value to something with http (ex: http://www.google.com)
  4. Click the Source button again, you should see the WYSIWYG editor. (it should say http://www.google.com)
  5. Double click the link you created from step 1.
  6. Click OK

The link text changes from what was set in step 3 to the original href value in step 1.

Expected Result (HTML Source): <a href="http://www.yahoo.com">http://www.google.com</a>

Actual Result (HTML Source): <a href="http://www.yahoo.com">http://www.yahoo.com</a>

I have noticed this issue on the version of CKEditor my platform uses - 4.3.3. However, I have also noticed this issue on the demo CKEditor (http://ckeditor.com/demo), which I believe uses version 4.4.2

Browser: IE 11.0.9600.17126 OS: Windows 7

Vote up. This is really bad. Means any change to a link in IE11 corrupts the link. Users will see the target instead of the text they set between <a> and </a>.
