Description

This is on Firefox 2 only and is the same issue as #5117 which is for the textarea control. The problem is that the editor and textarea are created using an Iframe in Firefox. A label element can not be associated with an iframe. In order to pass a11y requirements the label must be associated with the control. The solution is to find the associated label element and add any text from the label element to the title element of the html document within the iframe. The screen reader will always speak the title element.
