I'm still experiencing the same issue, also with other HTML constructions:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="" charset="utf-8">



I'm using 4.5.6. Any update on this issue?

@paulrutter I could not reproduce this problem in latest CKEditor 4.5.11. I have tried every test case mentioned in this ticket in IE11, Edge, FF and Chrome. No CKEditor crash occurred.

Please provide exact steps to reproduce this problem in CKEditor demo or default and standalone CKEditor freshly downloaded from our page (without any custom plugins or your application third-party scripts)

Hi @j.swiderski.

You're right, on the default CKEditor i'm not able to reproduce either. I guess it's indeed a combination of the setup of CKEditor we're using.

We're using:

  • CKeditor inline edit mode
  • our own "source" mode using ACE editor
  • we're using the "widget" functionality with a couple of our own widget plugins.

Maybe the cause lies in the combination of these variables. I will try to reproduce on a plain CKEditor version first.
