  • Keywords Kindle Silk removed
  • Status changed from new to confirmed
  • Version changed from 3.6 to 3.2.2

Issue has been reproducible from CKEditor 3.2.2. I have checked it under Opera mobile 11.50 23731.

Seems that from CKE 3.2.2 Opera has stopped recognizing WYSIWYG area as editable (keyboard does no longer popup).

How does CKEditor detect whether contentEditable / designMode is supported? You're likely trying to initialize the editor in Opera Mobile versions with no rich text editing support. IMO you should fall back to a TEXTAREA (actually I've been intending to discuss this with you).
