found using 2003.05.28 1.4 branch builds (prolly an issue in trunk as well). the
Clear button for quicksearch, when enabled, should be part of the tabbing cycle.
at present it isn't.

1. in the mailnews 3pane window, make sure that there's some text in the
quicksearch textfield so that the Clear button is enabled.

2. with focus (the caret) in the quicksearch textfield, hit the tab key.

expected: focus should move to the Clear button.
actual results: the Clear button is skipped and focus moves to the thread pane.

3. with focus in the thread pane, hit shift-tab.

expected: focus should move back to the Clear button.
actual results: the Clear button is skipped and focus moves to the quicksearch
textfield.

on win32 and linux you can hit alt-C (xul access key) to activate the Clear button.

there aren't xul access keys on mac, so you cannot use the keyboard to activate
the Clear button on OS X. the workaround there is to shift-tab back to the
field, where the contents will be selected, and hit delete to clear it.
