Thank you for sharing an appropriate workaround for the problem in question. I am sure it will be helpful to the other users until the bug is being fixed. 

I have prepared the Dojo example linked here to demonstrate the suggested workaround.

I faced this problem too.

This happens because the editor buttons don't have the type="button" attribute.
I added this code and fixed the problem:

    $('button:not([type])', editor.toolbar.element).each(function () {
        $(this).prop('type', 'button');
