This causes a test for bug 1327946 to be disabled on OSX for now. The problem seems to be that on these machines pressing shift + Tab focuses the browser content instead of the selected tab, which is different to all other systems and on my local OSX.

This sounds like a trivial problem but I'd like to rule out that there's a larger issue here, so I'll try to investigate.
Component: General → Keyboard Navigation
On OS X by default buttons are not keyboard navigable. There's a system preference that controls this, and there might be a separate Firefox pref too (but I'm not sure).
Duh, thanks, that solved it. I didn't remember that OSX had a different default keyboard access level.
