One can use <Tab> to focus on a particular link in a page, then <Enter> to follow that link. However, if one later uses Back to return to that page, the link focus is gone. This can make keyboard-based surfing tedious, especially if one's intention was to follow a link, back up, then follow the next link in the <Tab> sequence. Mozilla should remember which link had focus, and restore that focus when Forward or Back redisplays the page. Presumably the logic for doing this would be similar to the existing logic for remembering and restoring pages' scroll positions.
I know htis is a dup, just don't of which
