Focus trapped in TinyMCE Editor in Firefox

Component: TinyMCE Keywords:
Focuses: accessibility Cc:


When editing posts using keyboard only, focus becomes trapped within the content edit area. The issue has been observed with FF25 on Windows, and I believe Macs too.

Understand this might be an issue with FF but flagging it up anyway.

Steps to recreate:

  • Using tab and enter keys only, navigate to edit an individual post.
  • When in edit screen continue tabbing until focus is inside content editor.
  • It is now not possible to tab anywhere.

Both Chrome30 and IE10 on Windows show the correct behaviour - ie that you can tab into and subsequently out of content editor.

I've commented on the related ticket #17261 that this is still happening in trunk in Firefox. It's OK in IE10.

Not sure if this was a browser or editor issue, but works properly in FF 26 in trunk.
