Sorting any task list (Incidents, Changes, Problems, etc.) by any column while on IE11 breaks the list editing feature.

Steps to Reproduce


1- Open any instance while using IE11.

2- Open any task record list view.

4- Double-click an editable field. Notice that you can edit the field successfully.

5- Sort the list by clicking a field's name from the list's header. An error is thrown in Developer tools: 
Unable to get property 'firstChild' of undefined or null reference
File: js_includes_list_edit_doctype.jsx, Line: 1219, Column: 1

6- Double-click an editable field. Notice that you can not edit the field, the edit popup will not appear.


The issue is not reproducible with Chrome and Edge browsers. A workaround is also to sort the list via condition builder (except embedded).
