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.
