Go through a list of accessible roles that are potentially considered interactive if they have a focusable state. For example:

A gridcell may be focusable, editable, and selectable.

Bug 1591409 - improve keyboard a11y checks by avoiding false positive for interactive elements when they are focusable. r=nchevobbe

Beta/Release Uplift Approval Request

  • User impact if declined: Firefox 70 has a bug where we have false positives for accessibility checks in accessibility panel related to keyboard accessibility. It would be ideal to fix this in beta so there's only 1 release with the checks reporting false positives for those cases.
  • Is this code covered by automated tests?: Yes
  • Has the fix been verified in Nightly?: Yes
  • Needs manual test from QE?: No
  • If yes, steps to reproduce:
  • List of other uplifts needed: None
  • Risk to taking this patch: Low
  • Why is the change risky/not risky? (and alternatives if risky): Covered by tests, only affects users who run a11y checks in a11y panel.
  • String changes made/needed: None
