The anchor N on the left side <a id="Index_N" href="Index_N.html">N</a>
does not receive focus after click on the link N from the top line
<a href="#Index_N">N</a>
It did in Fx 1.0.7.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Load http://free.pages.at/staudinger/Regest/Indices/Index.html
1. Click the link "N" from the top line: left side anchor "N" does 
   not get focus - false.
2. By pressing the tab-key left side anchor "O" gets focus - correct.

I can't get a smaller regression window easily because there's a large gap in http://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/.

Aaron, could this regression be due to the change from bug 258514?

Hi,

I have tested this issue on the latest Firefox (45.0.1) release, latest Nightly (48.0a1 Build ID: 20160328030215) build and it is still reproducible. I have tested this using the provided test case from comment 2. After I have pressed the first link, the "target" link does not get focus.

Thanks,
Cosmin.
