Video showing steps to reproduce the issue

Description of problem:
The CKE Editor (3rd party HTML editor component used in FormModeler) spontaneously activates its High Contrast mode (see!/guide/skin_sdk_hc)

This is minor aesthetic issue, but one, that looks quite ugly when it happens. The problem might also be, that in this mode the component then overflows other fields in form canvas, when it is in the high contrast mode. The unexpected change in the editor might make the users think the editor is broken.

Observer the problem in the video.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
BPMS 6.0.0 CR2

How reproducible:
Always when on Firefox (In my case FF 24) and in Internet Explorer

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open some form with Rich text field added (displayed using CKE Editor widget in the form canvas). Make sure Problems panels is closed.
2. Now make the Problems panel appear (for example create new work item definition, make some mistake in it and save it -> then close the work item editor)

Actual results:
When the problems panel becomes present, the CKE Editor in form modeler sets itself in 'high contrast mode' - it is larger, has text buttons instead of 

Expected results:
If possible try to somehow disable the high contrast mode (some info about it is in the CKE documentation linked in the description). 

The other solution would be to adjust the size of the editor 'borderline' in the canvas, so that it doesn't overflow the elements that are below it.

Additional info:
As described in the CKE documentation, the High contrast mode can only happen in Firefox and Internet Explorer (I was able to reproduce the problem in both)
