    Default Grid: Multiline text selection issues in Firefox

    Ext JS, Firefox 49.0.1, Windows 10 (May be earlier, Ext - also has bug)
    Doctype: strict

    User has to do unnecessary clicks to select a text (a grid with text selection enabled) or to begin typing at desired position (grid with contenteditable cells)
    if the target cell is not in the focus. After the cell is focused there is no problem, but this is very annoying.

    Steps to reproduce

    Open fiddle

    Invalid selection:

    1. Make sure every column has more than one text line by resizing
    2. Rerun the fiddle to make sure the focus is not in the grid

    3. Try to select some text by mouse (simply push button at one point and release at other) in the first cell except in the first line (i.e. from the second to the third line),
    Then try to do the similar selection in the second cell, then again in the first cell and so on...

    Expected: Always exactly the desired text is selected
    Actual: One point of the selection is always on the first line (but the column is correct)

    Invalid cursor position:

    1-2 The same conditions as in the first case
    3. Try to do mouse click on any line except the first on the third cell, then try the fourth and so on...

    Expected: Editing cursor is exactly at the desired position
    Actual: Editing cursor is always on the first line of a cell (but again: the column is correct)
