Folder Properties dialog can't use Ctrl+Tab switch to first tab from the last


(SeaMonkey :: MailNews: Message Display, defect)

(Reporter: ginnchen+exoracle, Assigned: sspitzer)


1) Mailnews->Menu->Edit->Fold Properties

2) Now it's in "General Information" Tab, press ctrl+tab, it will focus "Name"
field [another bug]

3) Press ctrl+tab 3 times, it switches to "Offline", "Sharing", "Quato" tabs.

4) Press ctrl+tab again, nothing happens.
Note that only IMAP folders have multiple tabs on their Properties dialog.

In Moz1.7 and TB0.7, it appears that if the focus is on an item in the property 
sheet, Ctrl-Tab/Ctrl-Shift-Tab will move between tabs; but if the focus is on 
the Ok or Cancel button, focus will move to the first control on the displayed 
sheet.  However, if the sheet does not have any focusable items, the focus falls 
off of the sheet onto the Ok button.

Bug 130644 is marked fixed due to patch for bug 175893, also Aaron's work (just 
in the past month).  Using Moz 1.8a3-0806, this problem does not manifest, altho 
the solution is a little clunky: Shifting to a page without an item still lets 
the focus drop to the OK; then the first Ctrl-Tab puts the focus on the tab 
control, but does not shift to the next page; a second Ctrl-Tab properly moves 
to the next page, but maintains the focus on the tabs rather than moving to a 
control in the page.

Ginn Chen, I am presuming that you filed this bug with a 1.7 build or earlier, 
but you neglected to provide a build ID.  Duping.
