Fixed Can't delete selected text in editor in IE11

Affected version
If text is selected in the editor in IE 11, it can't be deleted by pressing Del or Backspace.

This seems to be a regesssion caused by Froala 2.9.4 which might already be fixed since Froala 2.9.5

Patching js/xf/editor-compiled.js with the Froala 2.9.5 source fixed the issue, so it is definitly caused by Froala regression.

One of our users has reported problems with the WYSIWYG editor in IE11 since XenForo 2.1.2, too. He says that quoting doesn't work correctly for him anymore. I have now manually updated to Froala 2.9.5 as well.
