Step 1: Select text in a contenteditable inline (which is nested in another inline) such that either the first or last character is included in the selection. Step 2: Press backspace or delete. Expected Results: All selected text is deleted. Actual Results: - If the selection included the first character, only the last character in the selection is deleted and the text is deselected. - If the selection included the last character, nothing is deleted and the text is deselected. - If the selection included all characters, nothing is deleted and the text remains selected.
Bug confirmed on Aurora (Fx 7.0a2) but works for me on Nightly (Fx 0.8a1). I couldn’t find the patch that solved this issue.

This patch ensures that the selection cannot be expanded outside of the contentEditable element (active editing host).
That’s bug 668599 then, thanks for finding out!
