Since the bug is relevant to both the contenteditable feature and the shadow DOM, so I am CC'ing both of you.

Editor initializes caret/selection at receiving focus event. So, the editable element does not receive focus event or the focus event listener of editor is not shadow DOM aware.
Priority: -- → P3
Also faced this issue, reproduced here:

No longer depends on: 1512043
In the "move-focus to the inner element inside the shadow DOM" case, in all browsers, there's no extra focus event dispatched.

So editor should probably use a different method other than regular event listeners in order to handle this.
Olli, do we have an easy way to somehow end up dispatching the focus event here at least for the system event handlers? Or should we just move that focus event handler to get notified via nsFocusManager instead or such?

If listener is added to chrome event handler, it should get the event. And listener could then use composedTarget
