Hi @ka2 - is this new to trunk (4.4 development) or does it exist in earlier versions?

Hi @ka2!

Apologies for the late reply. Could you give an example text that demonstrates the bug in Firefox for the visual editor? Thanks!

Re-testing this again. The hidden caret was (mostly) fixed by adding the "scroll to selected text". Still can see it happen some times, but not able to determine why it is inconsistent. In general it seems to be happening very rarely.

Thinking this is a minor "inconvenience" when it happens and since it is on the old Edit Post screen, not sure it's worth fixing. Closing as wontfix. Feel free to reopen with more examples that can be reproduced consistently.
