User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:59.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/59.0 Build ID: 20171207220423 Steps to reproduce: press ctrl + J to focus the downloads list Actual results: NVDA says library. I need to press shift + tab to focus and read the list. Expected results: NVDA should focus and read the first item in the list.
Confirmed. Happens with both 32 bit and 64 bit. Focus lands on the window element with id places. Instead, initial focus should be set to the richlistbox with id downloadsRichListBox. I seem to recall that this is a regression, but it appears to be the case in 56 at least.
It seems I was incorrect about this being present in Firefox 56.

For reference, this is also being tracked by NVDA: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7779
Hi Paolo! Bug 1381411 seems to have broken initial focus in the Downloads Library view. STR: 1. Ensure you have at least one download in your list. 2. Ensure the Library window is closed. 3. Press control+j to open the Downloads Library window. Expected: The Downloads list (id: downloadsRichListBox) should get focus. Actual: It doesn't. Focus lands on the window (id: places). Curiously, if the downloads list is empty, it *does* get focus as expected. Any ideas as to how this might have regressed?
Summary: NVDA doesn't focus the downloads list → Downloads list doesn't get focus when you press control+j to open the Downloads window
I don't know why this has regressed, but it should probably be fixed at some point.
Component: Downloads Panel → Bookmarks & History
Priority: -- → P5
Summary: Downloads list doesn't get focus when you press control+j to open the Downloads window → The Downloads view in the Library window doesn't get focus when opened
I might find some time to look into this in the next few days.
