#9394 confirmed Bug

IE9/IE10: [regression?] table cell selection lost when clicking outside the editor

Component: Core : Selection Version: 3.6.3
Keywords: IE Cc:


I have a custom link picking dialog. When we upgraded from 3.6.2 to 3.6.3 (or newer), problems arose with IE: in some cases the selection that was supposed to become a link was lost. I tried to create a minimal test case, see below.

How to reproduce:

  • open IE9 or IE10.
  • doubleclick on the word "bar" to select it
  • click on the kitten

What I expected to happen:

The selection is preserved. (Well. That is actually not the standard behavior with input controls, but seems to mostly happen with CKeditor, maybe due to it using an iframe?)

What actually happened:

The selection is lost and the cursor is moved to the beginning of the document.

Other notes

The problem is somehow linked to the table. The behavior seems to have changed between 3.6.2 and 3.6.3. Try here: - this page doesn't have this problem. Other versions are available in

I didn't try to find workarounds for this yet. Binding onmousedown might help.
