VisualEditor: Using browser native interactive spell-check when the changed word in the only item in the paragraph causes endless insertions in Firefox
Closed, ResolvedPublic8 Estimated Story Points



  1. In Firefox, enable "Preferences > Advanced > General > Browsing > Check my spelling as I type"
  2. On an empty line (slug), write "occurence"
  3. Observe wiggly red line; right click and change it to "occurrence"
  4. Observe explosion

Possibly a unicorning issue?

Working steps:

  1. On an empty line (slug), write "Foo occurence" or "occurence bar"
  2. Observe wiggly red line; right click and change it to "occurrence"
  3. Observe non-explosion

(i.e., it works fine if there's any other content in the content node)

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal



Event Timeline

This sounds similar to T65462 in Chrome, which has insertions, deletions, and corruptions.

Aklapper updated the task description. (Show Details)

Cannot reproduce on with Firefox 35 on Fedora 21, given the steps above.
Only one insertion/string replacement (as expected); no output in browser console.

Is this still an issue? If so, which FF version on which platform?

Re-checcked (Mac FF 34.0.5)
