VisualEditor: Unable to select empty section heading (e.g., to remove it) at the end of a page
Open, LowestPublic


Remove a blank section heading (==<nowiki/>==) at the end of a page.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Place cursor on blank section heading at the end of the page.
  2. Try to select it.

Actual Results:
Nothing. Also, it's not possible to select the whole line (e.g., to cut and paste it, leaving nothing behind) even after you type something on the section heading. If you type "abc", then you can select and cut "abc" (Note: what it cuts is *not* "==abc=="), but the ==<nowiki/>== will remain.

Reproducible: Always
