Got this bug report/RFE, from firstname.lastname@example.org, off the netscape.public.mozilla.unix newsgroup. People on IRC said bryner works with tab-focus in the browser content area, so starting with him Here's the original posting: ---- email@example.com Wrote: Hello, The more I use Mozilla the more I like it. I just wish this NG was more active so I could get more interaction with the *nix/moz community. Now, I just noticed that when you use the browser to research some problem or other you often end up with a web page that is thankfully all text with a large numbers of links - e.g. you do a Google search and end up with a bunch of threads from a mailing list.. In these circumstances I tend to tab down to the first link and hit <enter> read the message use Alt+arrow to go back to the thread index ready to read the next thread. For some reason, the 'focus' is sent back to the first link on the page rather than staying on the last viewed link.. I think that the focus should stay on the last visited link - that's the way it's done in Microsoft's IE I believe - so that the user can hit Tab just once to go to the next link.. hit <enter>.. etc.. and be done with the entire thread with minimal inconvenience. This may seem minor but if you have ever looked for answers to a tricky problem and doing this kind of detective work for hours on end, having a quick comfortable way to navigate the links via the keyboard makes a huge difference to your experience. I am unsure where I could report this via a bug report or an enhancement request. All hints much appreciated. Thanks, Chris.
Cc Aaron since it affects accessibility/key binding.
Bryner, isn't this a DUP of another bug you had to future?
