Build ID: 20141126041045

Steps to reproduce:

In a page, there are an anchor link <a href="#map">Go to the map</a> and links.
Then there is <div id="map">, inside this <div>, there are <map> and <area> tags, and then the last link.

I focus (tab key) on the anchor link <a href="#map">Go to the map</a>, then I press enter (see attached files).

Actual results:

The next focus is on "Last link" (see attached files) and not on <area>.

Expected results:

The next focus should have been on <area alt="Nord-Pas-de-Calais"> because it is the first focusable element on <div id="map"> (see attached files).

Hello Reporter, thanks for reporting this issue. I tried using your attached html file and comparing the behavior between the latest versions of Firefox (43.0.3) and Chrome (Version 47.0.2526.106 m) and did see difference in behavior with respect to where the next tab takes the user to. Firefox was taking the next focus to "Last Link" while Chrome was taking the next tab to "Go To the map" link.

However, as soon as I modified your HTML (attached) to duplicate the issue that you reported, I could clearly see that Firefox was not taking me to the expected map using the anchor link while Chrome was working fine.

I tested it on:
