#8240 closed Bug (invalid)

Right click causes text to be highlighted

Issue: If you type a line of text in the editor, then right click with your mouse cursor at the end of the line (i.e. to paste something), the text you just typed is highlighted.

This can be a problem because users may not notice the text they just typed is highlighted, so when they choose the paste option, it will overwrite the text they just typed. Ultimately you are unable to right click -> paste without erasing what you have already input into the editor.

I can reproduce this in the latest demo (although it sometimes takes a couple of attempts) using Firefox 5. Here is a small video showing it in action (taken from the demo):

It's the browser's (FF) own behavior to select whole paragraph when right clicking at the end, which can be reproduced on the midas demo as well, so have to somehow bear it.

This issue is also reproducible in plain div with contenteditable set to false. As @garry.yao said this is a browser issue.

Personally I don't like this behavior either but I don’t think there is anything we can do about it.
