  • Status changed from new to confirmed
  • Keywords Firefox Webkit added; label removed
  • Version changed from 3.6.3 to 3.0
  1. Paste the below code into editor:
    <label for="abc">Abc</label><input id="abc" maxlength="20" name="abc" size="20" type="text" value="test" /></p>
  2. Click on a label to put cursor in it.

Result: Focus jumps to input filed.

This has been reproducible in Webkit and Firefox (not only on Linux) from CKEditor 3.0.


  1. In Webkit you can get to the label using arrows. For the above TC just click behind input filed and go to the label using arrows - you will be able even to modify it
  2. In Firefox it is not possible to get to label. Even if you click before label you won't be able to "enter" it using arrows.
