 The fix above doesn't seem to work properly, and it behaves inconsistently
 across browsers. To reproduce:

 - Uncheck "Enable full-height editor and distraction-free functionality."
 in the Screen options
 - using Chrome, edit a long post starting in the "Visual mode"
 - select a word that occurs at about the middle of the post content:


 - switch to "Text mode": no scrolling happens and the selected word stays
 out of view:


 - switch back to "Visual mode"
 - the selected word is almost completely hidden at the top of the content
 visible area:


 Using Firefox instead, it behaves a bit better: at least the selected word
 is visible when switching from VIsual to text:


 Reopening for visibility. See also #42553.
