Move caret with arrow keys through the text containing {{lang}} template

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Navigate to a page that has {{lang}} template, e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_Latin_and_Greek_words_commonly_used_in_systematic_names&veaction=edit&vesection=18
  2. While in VE mode, position caret few characters before any {{lang}} template (e.g. "saura" row in the table of "S" section of the above article)
  3. Use right arrow key to move the caret to the right over the {{lang}} template

Actual Results:
The entire page scrolls to the top when caret goes over the {{lang}} template, while the caret itself remains in its place

Expected Results:
Caret should advance to the right over the {{lang}} template, the page should not scroll to the top

Reproducible: Always
