Firefox looses focus on selecting header type

We just upgraded to Confluence 5.6.6 and now users claim that they cannot change text attributes using the mouse.

To reproduce: (Using Firefox 31)

create a new page

Insert a table

add some table headers in 'Paragraph' format

Save the page.

Edit the page

select one header of the table.

Click on the selection for the header types and try to set 'Header3'

Firefox looses the focus after 'Header2' so it's not possible to click.

As a bypass the user can select using the cursor keys and hit 'Enter', but it should work

also mouse driven?

Using Chrome the error does not appear!

Is there a fix in sight for that?

Hi Harald,

I would create a bug report here so Atlassian can have a look at this.

One of our users actually had the same problem today (also with Firefox 31).

Chrome and IE work fine.

Best regards,
