User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Tab key navigation focus is lost when you use history navigation (alt-left) to return to a page. This should be retained as part of the state of the window that is restored when navigating backwards and forwards through the history list. If I tab to a link and hit enter to follow the link, and then either hit backspace or alt-left_arrow to return to the page that I was just at, when I hit tab it doesn't go to the next link/button/etc. after the one that I just visited. Instead, tab navigation always starts at the top of the page. I often naviagate pages where I wish to visit each link in turn. I should be able to tab to a link, visit it, return to the previous page, hit tab, and then visit the next page in the list. Instead, I have to keep tabbing from the top of the page, which can be very time consuming if there are many links on the page. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Tab to a link (not the first one on the page) and hit enter 2.Hit backspace or Alt-LeftArrow 3.Hit tab in an attempt to go to the link after the one you just visited Actual Results: You visit the first link or button on the screen regardless of which link was last clicked or tabbed to when the screen was last displayed. Expected Results: You should have gone to the next link or button AFTER the one that you just visited (i.e. - the one where focus was when you left the screen)
