In IE11 press delete within Visual Editor causes scrolling to top of page
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

In IE11 on any page when editing using Visual Editor, if text is selected and the delete key pressed, then the text is (correctly) deleted and automatically the user is scrolled to the top of the page which is undesirable.

  • This is using MW 1.28.
  • The same behaviour does not occur in Edge or Chrome.
  • I don't recall this behaviour in MW 1.26.

It heavily detracts from user experience, because this is a common operation.

Happy to provide further information. Nothing obvious on the console log.
