The Title says it all. But I thought Id add a long description.

Steps to reproduce
1. Open the tools menu and select the extensions manager
2. In tha manager click on an extensions icon. Preferably one that brings up a
window when you click on options(Such as AutoHide, Adblock and Tabbrowser
Preferences).
3. Now click on the options button for a different extension.

=> Expected Results
Focus is moved to the extension select in step 3 and its options screen is
brought up.
=> Actual Results
Focus remains on the extension you selected in step 2. Then the options window
for the extension in step 2 is brought up. Once that options windows is close
focus is then moved to the extension clicked on in step 3.

Jarrod: that's not what I meant by this bug.  That will teach me to enter bugs
without long descriptions :)

What I meant was:

1. Open Extension Manager.
2. Hit Tab a few times.

Result: Options, Info, Home buttons never receive focus.

Jesse: Sorry for highjacking you bug report. Id guess both problems are occuring
because of similar faults in the code. Hopefully both will get fixed at the same
time.

Aaron, what should we do with per-list-item buttons?  Some possibilities:

A. Put them in the tab order.  (Would tabbing through the buttons change which
extension is selected?)
B. Put them in the tab order, but only for the selected extension.
C. Leave them out of the tab order, forcing keyboard-only users to use the
context menu.
D. Turn them into normal buttons outside of the list.

I would be okay with D, but Ben doesn't want that one. I think B would be the
second best for accessibility -- good enough.

option (B) also sounds good to me.

As Ben mentioned in bug 257677, Home and Info are now context menu only, options
is down with Update and Uninstall.
