Ubuntu: When Chinese ibus input is on, selecting text on Firefox textareas makes the text disappear


The selected text does not have be Chinese characters, any character just disappears.

The problem happens both on:

  • mouse drag
  • ctrl + A

selection methods.

I installed the Chinese input through the simplest GUI method possible on the control panel.

This does not happen on Chromium, only Firefox.

Happens with Ubuntu 14.04, and Firefox on --safe-mode to turn off all addons.

If you are using ibus-pinyin now, you can try to use ibus-libpinyin package instead of ibus-pinyin.
