For usability, in lot of sense mozilla is a lot better than Internet Explorer. For this one, it was different. When i press tab key, my curson or say the ligh selection box (of dotted line) as on the check box rather than on the text. On Internet Explorer it seems to be working fine. I am sure it may not be called as a bug. But surely a enhancement that can help a lot to power users. Thanks Srini -- Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a checkbox with <label> tag for label and linking it to input tag. 2. Include this in the form. tab, tab.. and see Actual Results: Cursor was on check box rather than the text Expected Results: cursor should be on the 'Text' or 'Label'. I hope it is a simple UI problem.
->Layout/Form Controls Testcase forthcoming

Created attachment 134522 [details] One more test case... The previous attachment does not work in both IE and Mozilla. Current attachment works good in IE and not working in Mozilla. May be IE has a bug with 'input' field embedded with <label> and </label> So i thought may be this will help.
I don't know how "working" and "not working" is defined, but my testcase works the same for me in Mozilla 20031029 and IE6 PC/Win2000 -- tabbing puts focus on the checkbox. I don't see what problem is being reported anyway, since in your description you say Mozilla's behavior is better but then you say the current behavior "works fine" in IE -- implying you think Mozilla's behavior is wrong. Severity -> Trivial, since no matter where the tab goes to, you are in a position to toggle the checkbox using the keyboard anyway. Reporter, you might want to define exactly what you think the problem is since your description contradicts itself.
Severity: normal → trivial
I work as a Tech. Architect and also interfacce expert for web interface system (internal and not for external websites). Cursor movement generlly drives how super users use it using the key board. I agree that it works perfectly i.e. toggle, and it is not critical. But what is highlighted generally makes it very easy for power users(who uses keyboard extensively) for maximum output within minimum time. Check the second attachment in IE and you will know what i am saying. http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=134522&action=view Also, this is very much cler in checkbox case, as checkbox itself is very small and so cursor is not clearly visible. Making the corresponding label highlighted (with dashed box) may be more user friendly. You can highlight both checkbox and label which will also work. Again this can be extended to all kinds of input fields, whose label is linked using <label> statement. I know that it is for screen readers, accessibility, but highling some way the label makes data entry very easy. my 2 cents.
