WYMeditor and Firefox 3.6 - Missing cursor

Description (last modified by mr_lundis) (diff)


See  the basic test page.

In Firefox 3.6, when you click in the editor the cursor does not show. E.g. click with your mouse after "Hello World" to begin editing. No cursor is shown. If you click once outside of the editor area, and then back inside, the cursor will show.

This is a Firefox 3.6 (latest release of Firefox) issue only.

The URL, that seems broken above, was just an URL to the basic demo on the WYMEditor web-page.

Fixed the link, and made it point to the basic test page instead of the demo page, verification is till needed though.

This is indeed an issue, but can't find the cause for this. I've found some different forum threads discussing the bug but there's no cause nor fix mentioned anywhere.

I'd say this is a Mozilla bug as they obviously have made some kind of change since 3.5 causing this. But not all designMode editors seems to be affected, which makes things a little bit more difficult. Of course there's the possibility that they've implemented some kind of workaround already, or that this issue only shows when designMode is initiated as in WYMeditor.

Fixed in r650. designMode weren't initiated properly until editor got focus. The cursor showed "onClick" (focus) in earlier versions of FF, but stopped doing so in 3.6
