Not reproducible with Firefox 57 but reproducible with current Nightly.
It is also reproducible in the CKEditor sandbox:
I can't reproduce this with the latest Nightly. Is this platform specific?

According to Cristina it happens on Windows.

Indeed, I've encountered this issue only on Windows platform, to be more specific on Windows 10 x64. I didn't manage to reproduce it on Mac 10.12.6 or on Ubuntu 14.04 x64.

This is still reproducible, on latest Nightly build 59.0a1 (2018-01-10), using the latest version of the "Firefox Notes" add-on (2.2.0dev custom build from 01.10.2018) or "Firefox Notes" add-on version installed from Test Pilot experiment page:
