Mine does what Safari does, so maybe they changed in 10.11. Notes in 10.11
is a major upgrade.

Added, but I still don't see Firefox does (b).

I've tried to explain multiple times (many mails, some short, some long,

I've tried too, unfortunate to fail to even understand each other. I'm
against the combination of a+b+c+d+e.

1. I want to understand what user problem you're trying to solve. Real use
cases? User complaints?
2. I believe what you're proposing makes editing experiences much worse. To
prove I'm wrong:
2.1. I want to see single apps/sites that does what you're proposing.
2.2. I want to see what other editor developers think to understand how
common the proposed behavior is.
