User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1

In IE I click on a link and read the page. I use Alt + back to go back. Then use
Tab to move to the next link. and hit enter. In firefox, if I use tab after
using the Alt + back arrow, the first link on the page is selected.
When I use back, it still does remember the position of the page but forgets the
link that was selected! Using tab after Alt + Back arrow is so convenient. If
the focus after using Alt Back is at the text from where I left shouldn't the
links behave in the same way? 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on any link on a page
2. Use Back to go the previous page
3. Use Tab
Actual Results:  
You will find that you have selected the first link on the page.

Expected Results:  
The next link

Loosing the focus on a link is indeed annoying, especially when using the
keyboard to look through a list of search results (a rather frequent use case, I
would have assumed).

I have the same problem. Am running Firefox 0.9.2 and earlier 0.8 and Windows
XP. Same deal with both versions. Really annoying for a keyboard navigator like
myself.
