User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031026 Firebird/0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031026 Firebird/0.7

When tabbing around to fill-out online form data, the OSX version of Firebird
ignores pull-down menus and check boxes.  AFAIK, it only recognizes text boxes
as valid locations for data entry. Win32 version of Firebird does not exhibit
this behavior. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  go to http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Firebird
2.  When on page, hit tab key and notice where the cursor goes each time
3.

Actual Results:  
Cursor position skips over lists ("component" section), pull-down menus
("Hardware Platform", "OS", "Reporducibility", and "Severity" sections), and
check boxes ("Security" section) but "finds" all text entry boxes.

Expected Results:  
Each of the above listed items should have been accessible by tabbing dowm the page.

No crashes seen, just really annoying quirk!

standard macos behavior is to tab to fields only.  behavior is correct.  if you
want different behavior, see my comment in bug 223328.
