  1. Load data:text/html,<div><a href="a">one</a></div><div><a href="b">two</a></div><div><a href="c">three</a></div>
  2. Go to last item with VO next
  3. Press VO+Left

Cursor is unresponsive, after repeated presses it goes to the second link, and then it goes to the webarea

VO cursor should go back to the second and first link respectively with each press of VO+left

It looks like a previous search that is done with no start element won't return any items.

Is this a new issue? Nothing in this bug suggests it's a regression and given how late we are in the cycle I'm not sure it would qualify for uplift if not.

(same question as in bug 1668137)

Flags: needinfo?(eitan)

Yes, this bug is regressed by bug 1657418.

Since it is late in the cycle, and VoiceOver support in mac is still experimental, I think it is fine if this is declined beta.
