#9030 confirmed Bug

IE9: select text + open link dialog - link creation fails if text contains linebreak <br /> tag.

Reported by: Ola Bråhammar Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Core : Selection Version: 3.6.3
Keywords: IE9 Cc: Marcus Pickering


In IE9, (in WYSIWYG mode)

Inside a <p> tag:

Creating a few lines of text separated with <br /> (shift+enter in default cfg) and then selecting one of those lines using arrow keys

now if i open the link dialog box and fill in an url and press OK, no link is created.

Alternatively, if not the whole line is selected but only a word, then a link may get created but its text will be the same as the URL instead of the selected word.

This bug is reproducible in the online demo at

This bug seems to have come and gone a few times before:

@Ola I wasn't able to reproduce your issue.

  1. Could you perhaps provide a screen cast for it?
  2. Are there any other besides default settings in IE9 that you haven't written about - compatibility mode, different document mode set, some security setting etc. ?

I'm seeing this bug too.

I've created a screencast to help you see how to reproduce this issue in your online demo.

I don't have any non-standard settings in IE9 that I'm aware of.

Reproducible from CKEditor 3.6.3 rev. [7366] in IE9 only.

To reproduce:

  1. Start with new page
  2. Type word "test" and select it from right to left. You should finish behind editor.
  3. Click link button on toolbar and apply link to selection.
  4. Put cursor behind link and paste SHIFT+ENTER (to insert br) couple of times.
  5. Place cursor in one of these new lines and repeat steps 1-3.

Result: link will be either applied next to text or won’t be applied at all.
