#12367 closed Bug (invalid)

Bold, Italic, Underline, Strike, SubScript, SuperScript buttons don't work in Firefox

Reported by: dan turcu Owned by:

Component: UI : Spell Checker Version:
Keywords: Cc:


When I press this buttons nothing happens, they don't get selected as usual and also the changes are not reflected in the text selected.

So far I found only one place(only in an Email) where it happens, and only in Firefox.

I can't confirm that. I have checked few emails and wasn't able to reproduce this issue.

  1. Can this issue be reproduced on demo page (
  2. Could you send us screen-cast for this issue? Perhaps there is something I have missed.
  3. Are you using any third-party plugins or scripts that might influence this behaviour?

comment:2 Changed 10 years ago by dan turcu

No , it cannot be reproduced on the demo page. Yes, I am using plugins developed by me, but I don't think that they might influence this behaviour. And I get this error in the javascript debug console : TypeError: c[g].word is undefined - ckscayt.js 36

And if I disable scayt I don't get this error anymore.

I'm using firefox 31.0

My opinion it's that scayt checks doesn't need to be triggered when this buttons are clicked because they don't have nothing to do with language.

I have checked this issue with scayt turned on/off and still can't reproduce this problem.

If it was possible to reproduce this problem in Demo page or default CKEditor (e.g. default full package freshly downloaded from our website) with scayt turned on, I would agree that CKEditor (or SCAYT) might have something to do here. This issue is however not reproducible in default editor but only in your instance with third-party plugins.

My guess is that your plugins not necessarily conflict with CKEditor but they may conflict with SCAYT. The only thing I can recommend is trying same scenario without plugins and if there are no errors, please enable your plugins one by one to see which one is causing problems.

I'm closing this issue as invalid as I don't see any CKEditor issue here. You are however welcome to investigate this problem further comment in this ticket if you are convinced this is editor fault.

I succeeded to reproduce this bug in the demo page using Firefox browser, these are the steps :

  1. Enter the demo page, check the source button and delete all the existing code
  2. Copy Paste the html code from the attached file bad.html
  3. Uncheck the source button and try to click one of the Bold Italic Strike buttons

I have tried your steps but all seem to work fine. Please see attached video.

comment:8 Changed 10 years ago by dan turcu

Sorry, my fault, there is another step: you should enable SCAYT first in the editor.

Thank you for the details. I have reported this issue ( to SCAYT team because it doesn't happen by default in editor.

Let's keep this ticket closed as this is SCAYT issue.
