After upgrading to Chrome 55, cannot tab to or select text from fields that have been marked read only.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Set a field to Read Only.

  2. View the field on a form.

  3. Attempt to tab to the field or select the text in the field.

    Note that you cannot tab to or select text from field.


Use one of the following workarounds:

  • Use chrome version 55 (currently in beta) or later. Google is aware of this issue and has added a fix in Chrome version 55.
  • Highlight the area around the field in a way that includes the intended text. Copy the highlighted text. When pasting the content, delete the extra/unwanted text.
  • Change the way that the problematic field has been set to read-only. For instance, if it is set to read-only on the client side, make the setting on the server side.
