Selection.extend() does not work on an element that has contenteditable="false"


(Core :: DOM: Selection, defect, P3)

Steps to reproduce:

In Firefox, if there is an element that has contenteditable = 'false', when selection.extend() is called on it, a NS_ERROR_FAILURE is thrown in the console. And the highlighting is not visible due to the fact that it is built using selection.extend()  - this is the case for Chrome, which works perfectly.

Expected results:

Selection.extend() should work exactly how it does on an element with contenteditable"true" and the highlighting should be visible
