This is an issue for mouseless navigation. When you use the tab key to tab through links and then hit Enter to visit the link, if you return to the original page (by hitting the back button, for example), the browser will remember the scroll position, but not the element in focus. If you hit the tab key, you'll be returned to the first focusable element from the top of the page. This makes mouseless navigation very tedious if you're trying to visit several links from a single page. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit the Bulbul's Links page at <http://www.fizzylogic.com/users/bulbul/links.html>. 2. Tab down to a link low in the page. Visit the link by pressing Enter. 3. Return to Bulbul's Links by hitting Back or keying Alt+<-. 4. Try to visit the next link on that page, mouselessly. The link which was in focus when you left the page is no longer in focus. If you press tab, you'll be returned to the top of the page and will need to tab all the way down again. There's no way to go straight to the next link.
