according to new proposal, F8/Ctrl+F8 will be used to move focus out of textbox
Attachment #159067 - Flags: review?(aaronleventhal)
Nian, I thought that F8 would move focus away from any form control to the document. Why make it only specific to text boxes? (What happens in Opera, are we doing something similar to that?)
according to our discussion, we decide to postpone the implementtation of form control until we get a consistent option from community. so pls. give it a review -. after new proposal comes, i'll fix it according to it.
