#502 closed Bug

Firefox and Multiple FCKeditors — at Version 6

Reported by: Gareth Lapworth Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: FCKeditor 2.4.2
Keywords: Cc:

Description (last modified by Martin Kou)


When using multiple FCKeditors on a single page in firefox, only one editor has the ability to be used for typing. The same page when rendered in IE will allow typing in each and every instance of the FCKeditor.

I have found that it is possible to enable all of the editors again for typing by making the editor full screen and then resizing to normal.

If there is any more information you would like, please let me know.

I've just tested it with sample09 and it worked correctly. Probably it is something specific to your case.

Can you attach a test case file so we can try to reproduce the problem here?

I can confirm this issue. The page is here - (doesn't require login). You'll see the multiple non-functional boxes when you expand Requirements/Education/Experience.

I'm using Firefox and have verified it happens even when all my extensions are disabled.

I was able to make the FCKeditor widgets active in by running the following code in Firebug's console:


Other than this quickfix I have no idea why it doesn't work yet.

I stripped out all the extra "fluff" around the code (same URL as before). It demonstrates the problem a lot quicker with this method. Oddly enough, without the setTimeout, the problem goes away.

Do you think you can attach a simple test case to this ticket? It would make it easier for us to debug the problem here.

An example of having a Firefox editor lose focus when its hidden then unhidden using CSS.

I was able to reproduce the bug with a single editor instance. It seems to have nothing to do with multiple instances. The bug occurs when an FCKeditor widget is hidden at initialization. This is consistent with what was seen in the old where the second and third FCKeditor instances were hidden at the beginning.

My test case:

By the way, the new test case in showing two non-hidden editors is working correctly for me.
