IE Quirks Mode: Unspecified Error when making a selection in the editor

There is an old bug fixed 2 years ago, that is reproducible with CKEditor 4.4.4. On IE9 with document mode Quirks, start to select from the beginning of the text and the error rises. I checked the code in version 3.6.5, the fix was in 'selection' plugin, just an try .. catch block around; at line 449. In the current version this code is in the core (file selection.js line 645), the try catch block is absent and error is reproducible again.

It is confirmed that the error rises also on IE8 and IE10 in Quirks document mode. A short video is attached.

I haven't been able to reproduce that.

  1. Are you able to reproduce this issue in standalone clean CKEditor out side of your application? By clean I mean CKEditor without any third-party plugins or core code modifications - e.g. full package downloaded from our download page.
  1. How are you setting the quirks mode? You should not do it through dev-tools (standard user don't use it and results may vary from real quirks mode). Proprer approach is using e.g. no doc-type definition or setting <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=5" />. Please note however that this tag has been deprecated in IE11 (can still be used) and will ignored for public web sites in IE Edge -

@Iliyan are you perhaps able to prepare reduced HTML sample that I can use with my default CKEditor and see the problem live?
