The scrolling effect happened also in other WebKit browsers before applying the #14659 fix. However in Safari there is also a problem with selection which happens only in this browser.

If you look at this jsfiddle ( it seems that confirmation dialog and native focus causes contenteditable to lose selection.

You could also use #14659 manual test case to reproduce it.

The thing is this also happens in iframe editor, you can follow the steps from issue description but on and result is the same. It seems like the main cause of this issue is selection which is set to the beginning of the editor content after clicking ok on confirmation dialog.
