Steps to reproduce

  1. Open the following sample
  2. Notice that the cursor is not visible. It is moved to 9th position, but the text is not moved and the cursor is hidden.
  3. The same problem is valid when setSelectionRange() is called inside a event handler (e.g. keypress). At the first point I though the problem was caused because the preventDefault() is called, but I guess the root problem is the one with the setSelectionRange() method.

Actual Result:
The selection/cursor is not visible, when the text width is more than the input width.

Expected Result:
The text is moved so that the cursor and current selections are visible, while in Edge I can reproduce both.

In IE11 I’m only able to reproduce the problem with setSelectionRange() in keypress event, while in Edge - both.
