One significant difference between normal operation and the bug is that at this line: cache.startElement is null, so it gets returned, which in turn causes problems along the way.

Another difference: Normally by the time onOpen is fired, the elements path is visible. This is not the case when the bug occurs. This is because the editor doesn't have focus at the time, which is due to the fact, that for some reason the editor.focusManager.hasFocus flag is (wrongly) truthy.

One solution would be to use the editable focus state instead of the editor's, since it more reliably tells whether the editor is in the desired state.

Added unit test. Changes pushed to branch:t/14534.

We have also the same issue for IEs (including IE11 and Edge) starting from CKEditor 4.2. Please see: #12326
