Trunk build 2002-12-23: Mac 10.1.3

Overview: In the Address Book, press Tab and focus always goes to the Quick
Search  input field instead of the next element.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Select the Persoanl Address Book in the directory pane
2. Tab and now the cursor is in the Quick Search input field
3. Tab again

Actual Results: The cursor remains in the Quick Search field. Try selcting a
card in the results pane, Tab and the cursor goes to the Quick Search field
again. Shift+Tab doesn't work. 

Should Control+Tab work on the mac?

Expected Results: 
- Tab should move to the next element (i.e. address book, quick search field.
Advanced button, card in results pane,elements in preview pane, back to address
- Shift + Tab, should stop at all the elements but in reverse order

Additional Information:
- This was working in Netscape 7.01 so it's a regression.

Marking nsbeta1 for accessibility reasons and this was working in N7.01.
Accessibility in Mac X address book is basically useless.

Once this is working then check when the Get Map button is highlighted that the
"return" key will display a map of the address in the browser window.

Nope. With full keyboard access enabled, I don't see this (trunk/branch). If I select the Personal Addressbook, hitting Tab multiple times takes me to:

Search field --> "Clear" button --> "Advanced" button --> the selected card --> email/URI's in the card preview pane (and I can Tab through the different e-mail addresses/URI's, so I don't see bug 203414 either) and then back to the Personal Addressbook. Using Shift+Tab moves backwards.
