VisualEditor: Pressing backspace or delete in IE11 makes the page jump around
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

  1. Edit [[Nausea]] in VE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nausea?veaction=edit
  2. Scroll down to the "Medications" section
  3. Click in the middle of a sentence and hit "backspace" a few times.

Each time you do this, the page jumps, and the sentence in which the cursor is located always ends up at the very bottom of the viewport.

  1. Press "delete" key a few times

Same behaviour.

  1. Now click in the middle of the very long paragraph under "Diagnostic approach". Hit "backspace" a few times.

Once again, the page jumps, but now it is worse, because the page lands with the cursor offscreen.
