VisualEditor: Recursive word addition with Google Input Tools in reference tool on Firefox
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Download and install Google input tools for windows
  2. Open any page in firefox
  3. Open VE
  4. Edit a reference
  5. Type anything in the reference. The word is input by the tools when the word is complete and one presses space/enter

Expected Behaviour:
The word is input and if the spacebar has been pressed, a space is input too.

What happens instead:
The word is entered recursively over and over. The space isn't input at all.

System environment:
Win 7 X64 SP1
Firefox 15.0.1
Google input tools for languages hindi and punjabi(gurmukhi script)

The problem didn't seem to arise when using input tools for urdu, though its possible that's just coz the wiki is ltr and urdu is rtl.

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal
