I have tested this issue on Windows 10 x64 with the latest Firefox release (50.1.0) and the latest Nightly (53.0a1-20170108030212) and managed to reproduce it as described in STR_1 in the description.

This also impacts the new print modal. If you shift+tab to print preview before the preview is initialised (i.e. while it is just a blank document), you won't be able to shift+tab any further. I discovered this while working on bug 1660363. I haven't been able to reproduce this in manual testing, but it was showing up intermittently in automation.
