Shift key faulty behavior on English Wikipedia when using source editor in Internet Explorer
Closed, DuplicatePublic


When using Internet Explorer, on English Wikipedia, if I use the source editor in a section of text, and I use my mouse to move the cursor to somewhere in the middle of the text, then I press shift to insert a capital letter, instead of leaving the cursor in its current position the cursor moves to the bottom of the section. I tested IE in source mode editor on Meta and Spanish Wikipedia, and the problem doesn't occur in either of those wikis, so there may be an ENWP-specific bug. This bug makes source mode editing in IE on English Wikipedia difficult.

Which IE version is this about? Does this also happen when not being logged in (or did you disable all gadgets to check if something interferes)?
