Steps to reproduce


  1. Can be reproduced on any contenteditable="true" element, e.g.
  2. Switch to Japanese Hiragana keyboard.
  3. Place cursor inside contenteditable and type test.
  4. Click somewhere else inside contenteditable.
  5. Type a.

See attached gif file.


Composition ends after clicking somewhere else inside contenteditable. Typing does not insert any additional characters.


Looks like composition do not end after clicking somewhere else, and it end after next action like input. Typing results in inserting additional characters from composition.

Works fine in both Chrome and Firefox.
