User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130910160258

Steps to reproduce:

Like Bug 835964.

when i try define a property in the inspector, like class or id, html entities are replaced by the equivalent code.

example:
class='default'
 is replaced by 
class='default'
for this reason the property is not renderized

if type: $('body') is presented $('body')
etc.

Nightly: 35.0a1 (2014-09-06)

I tried it and it works fine for me.

Steps to reproduce:
- select element
- hit tab until the cursor is just behind the last attribute
- hit 'space bar'
- enter attribute and value
- hit 'enter'

Going to attach a video as well. Is this still broken for you josmiguel92?

WFM as Albert previously said.

When trying to insert a &shy; into content text it was necessary to open the edit area with the Edit As HTML context menu of the parent <p>. Simply double clicking the text and typing &shy; gave the result &amp;shy; as stated in bug 835964.

The ways how the different edit areas are opened affects the handling of the typed in data.
Thanks HB. Closing as WFM.
