Editor: Resolve macOS Firefox / Safari sibling inserter behavior #11684

This pull request seeks to resolve an issue where attempting to use the sibling inserter in Firefox or Safari will result in unintended block selection (see example).

The reason for this can be attributed to browser-and-OS-specific handling of click and focus events, specifically affecting Firefox and Safari on macOS.


The changes here reason this issue by allowing the div wrapper to be focusable (not tabbable), thus receiving the focus event on itself.

Testing instructions:

Verify that the sibling inserter behaves as expected in your preferred browser, and in Firefox and Safari for macOS.
