User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/42.0.2311.90 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

Tabbed to a region with overflow:auto or overflow:hidden which FF adds to the tab sequence

Actual results:

No role is exposed to the Accessibility APIs for this region

Expected results:

if the region does not have a useful role specified we should expose role=scrollbar and the correct aria-valuemin, aria-valuemax and aria-valuenow such that screen readers could present some useful information to their users about the current tab stop.
