Build ID: 20140506152807

Steps to reproduce:

1) Open this fiddle  in firefox (of course)
2) Focus the input field on top 
3) Hit tab to tab into the content editable

Actual results:

The focus of the cursor is in the wrong place. You cannot arrow around the text. Note: seems similar but this way of reproducing is much more general.

Expected results:

It should focus the caret at the start of the text. Works ok in Chrome, IE ect..

Sigh...  I think we don't recognize the <article> element as a block element.
Hmm, except that editing the jsfiddle to make it use a div element doesn't fix the bug either!
Having this problem too. Using medium-editor.js placeholder feature provokes this bug. It's easy to reproduce this bug and you guys can see it by visiting my app at Right when you land in the page, click where it says "Start writing here". You'll see the cursor exactly "1em" above it's correct place.

Why is this unconfirmed ?

Using Firefox 33.1.1
