VisualEditor: Copying text causes browser to scroll to the top of the page and move the cursor to the top in Safari
Open, MediumPublic


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open a long page in Safari 6.2 (maybe others?)
  1. Scroll down a ways and select some text.
  1. Copy (Command-C) that text.


After a brief delay (one second?), the page scrolls all the way to the top. The cursor is located at the very beginning of the page. (The text is correctly copied.)

Version: unspecified
Severity: minor

Event Timeline

Update: As of July 2015, this is still happening in Safari 8.0 on Mac 10.10

However, instead of scrolling all the way to the top of the page, it scrolls until the selected/copied text is at the very bottom of the screen.
