FF: You can't delete placeholder using backspace key

Reported by: Jakub Ś Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: 3.5
Keywords: Firefox Cc:


To reproduce:

  1. Open placeholder plugin sample
  2. Put cursor behind placeholder and try to delete it.

Result: you can't.

This is actually how Firefox works. It does not allow for removing non-editable elements with backspace key
Insert the below code in HTML page, open it in Firefox and try to delete placeholder.

<div contenteditable="true" style="margin-bottom:25px; border:3px solid black;">
<p>This is a <span contenteditable="false" data-cke-placeholder="1" class="cke_placeholder">[[sample placeholder]]</span>. You are using <a data-cke-saved-href="" href="">CKEditor</a>.</p>

Perhaps CKEditor might introduce some code working around this issue

Fixed in CKEditor 4.3 beta by using widget system to implement placeholder.
