Steps to reproduce

Trying to remove a deeply nested list causes each affected list to remain in the DOM with one list item each.

Please see the attached file for a live demo.

Chromium Bugreport There’s a similar issue in Chrome, but it causes less list fragments to remain:


1. A
2. B
  1. C
    1. D
3. E

Select the content from B to D and press [DEL] or [BACKSPACE], or execute getSelection().getRangeAt(0).deleteContents().

Expected Result

1. A
2. <caret>
3. E

Actual Result

1. A
    1. <caret>
3. E
