Confirming as a difference between Firefox and WebKit, but I am not sure what
the correct approach would be.

In Firefox, window.getSelection() returns a collapsed range positioned before
the TEXTAREA (HTMLBodyElement, offset 22 in your example). This doesn't look
right to me - that is an entirely different position, and the insertion point
can easily be moved there in contenteditable mode.

TEXTAREA has a child text node - perhaps it would be more appropriate to make
window.getSelection() return the actual range within this text node?

BTW, you can probably use onfocus/onblur handlers to track the last focused
