I think I will be needing more information on this one because I was not able to reproduce it.

  1. What operating system are you using?
  2. Have you tested this problem in default sample of CKEditor or you have used your configuration settings? If so, what settings have you used?
  3. Does it occur in clean version of CKEditor or in integration with Java, PHP etc.

4.What doctype, if any, are you using on your HTML page?

Any sample files that will help us to reproduce the issue are welcome.

I have attached a testing script which uses the CKEditor 3.6.1 library and jQuery 1.4.2. Start the program using index.php. Two seconds later, the editor will open up. The reason for this behavior is that my end users can click on an item of text in a page and it automatically creates the text-editor script which then allows updates to the text item.

To my knowledge, the issue happens on all operating systems. The settings and the doctype are all included in the attachment.

Shadowbox example

This is also broken when using Shadowbox. You can see this using the second attachment I created. This to me, rules out the possibility that the popup behavior is the problem since Shadowbox does not create popups.

@syn4k Thank you for the sample it was very helpful.

I have modified a little bit the file provided and it seems that the line 48 of text-editor.html file is causing the problem.

$('#cke_contents_editor1').css('overflow', 'hidden');

With this setting text gets unselected in Firefox all versions (3.6 - 5) and in IE all versions (6-9). Issue is reproducible from CKE 3.0.
