User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030411 Phoenix/0.5+ Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030411 Phoenix/0.5+ Many other browsers (but not Firebird) maintain the "highlighted", or active link when navigating from page to page - this is a very useful capability and especially relevant when navigating via keyboard (tab, shift-tab, enter, alt-left arrow/right arrow, etc.). Hypothetical example: the user is on a page of links, and using the keyboard to navigate. The user tabs through to the 3rd link (3 tabs), and follows it with the enter key. The user reads the web page, and then wishes to navigate back to the previous page, which can be accomplished with alt-left arrow. At this point, the "highlight location" is not the link that the user had just selected, but the "root highlight location" - therefore to follow the next link in order requires 4 tabs and the enter key. If the browser behavior is changed so the highlight is the link that was just followed, then the user can proceed to the next link with just a single tab, and then enter. This is highly useful when trying to quickly navigate through a series of links via keyboard. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. tab to Xth link on page, follow link 2. go back to parent page 3. tab to X+1th link on page Actual Results: step 3 required X+1 tabs Expected Results: Step 3 should have required 1 tab
I know nothing about the programming behind Firebird, but I assume this would require storing the "highlight location/page location" for each item in the browser's history. Therefore you could move the user to the previous spot on the page/previous link highlighted if they went back to that page.
