Answer

Since you have 5 elements with contenteditable, try giving them ID's to simplify access.

The following code deactivates the 5 contentediable elements:

var editable_elements = document.querySelectorAll("[contenteditable=true]");
editable_elements[0].setAttribute("contentEditable", false);
editable_elements[1].setAttribute("contentEditable", false);
editable_elements[2].setAttribute("contentEditable", false);
editable_elements[3].setAttribute("contentEditable", false);
editable_elements[4].setAttribute("contentEditable", false);

Demo

Or you can you a loop

var editable_elements = document.querySelectorAll("[contenteditable=true]");
for(var i=0; i<editable_elements.length; i++)
    editable_elements[i].setAttribute("contentEditable", false);
