Safari: Pasting into post title is broken

Reported by: lukasbesch's profile lukasbesch Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 6.2.2
Component: Editor Keywords:
Focuses: ui, accessibility, javascript, administration Cc:


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to the block editor to edit a post using Safari.
  2. Click on the post title (the cursor position does not matter). Assume the current post title has the value old.
  3. Paste text using your keyboard (cmd + v). Assume the pasted value is NEW.
  4. The title is now oldNEWold. The cursor position is now at the beginning (before the first letter).

I only tested on a mac using cmd + v.
This only happens in Safari. My Version is 16.5 (17615., 17615).
This also happens on a fresh bare bone WordPress 6.2.2 site, with no plugins and the default theme.
It also happens if you first select all the text in the post title (expecting to overwrite it)
It does NOT happen if you paste using the mouse and context menu.
