Wonky cursor behavior in the visual editor in Firefox

Noticed some wonky behavior with the cursor when using the visual editor in Firefox this evening. Every time the cursor is placed inline, the cursor focus jumps back to the beginning of the paragraph.

To illustrate the issue, I created a gif. Watch as I click (the circles) the focus jumps back to the beginning of the paragraph every time. I was unable to track this back to a specific trunk commit, but this is as of r36892.

Testing in Chrome yielded expected behavior, so I'm thinking this is Firefox-specific. Firefox version is 44.0.2.

Couldn't reproduce in Firefox 44.0.2 on Mac and Windows and in 45.0 on Windows. Can you still reproduce after deleting the browser cache? Or were you doing something else right before that started happening? Or perhaps the theme's editor-style.css or a Firefox addon is affecting the editor?

I think it was a browser extension. Working as expected now.
