found using 2004101809-0.9+ bits on linux fc2. this was not a problem with firefox 1.0PR. 1. open the Preferences (Options) dialog. go to a panel which contains trees such as Privacy or Advanced. 2. hit the tab key and try to move focus to one of the tree twisties, for example: * Privacy > History * Advanced > Accessibility * etc... expected: you should be able to move focus to the "History" (or "Accessibility" or whichever tree twisty). actual results: focus cannot be moved using the keyboard (tabbing or up/down arrow keys) to the tree twisties. because of this, I'm also unable to expand or collapse the twisties using the keyboard (eg, right/left arrow keys). need to use the mouse to expand/collapse the tree twisties within Preferences. interestingly, this isn't a problem in the Bookmarks Manager, which also contains tree twisties: keyboard shortcuts to expand/collapse the trees work, and I can move focus amongst them.
nominating as this is a regression. will find regression window in a bit.

Tracy or Asa, could you check to see if this is a problem on Windows as well? thanks! this bug would affect this test: http://testrunner.mozilla.org/test.cgi?run_id=571#1034
When I did this test, at first glance, I thought I was seeing it on Windows too. But it seems that Tab moves through all the items in the options window; first the Main Five menu items and then into the other widgets of the opened menu item. Is it a bug or is it intentional?
Tracy, are you able to move focus to the twisty and its associated label? that is, in say the Advanced panel are you able to move focus to the "Accessibility," "Browsing," "Tabbed Browsing," "Software Update," widgets? I can move focus to the *children* of these items, I just cannot move focus (or toggle the state) to these *parent* items --I don't remember what the appropriate term would be (tree twisty, top of tree, ?).
This works for me (I think) on windows branch build from this morning. I can tab into the tree panel and through each of the trees with enter expanding and collapsing the trees. I'll check linux next.
On linux I can get the focus to all of the trees and their child elements but I don't get a focus ring so it's difficult to see what has the focus. That could be a bug on my system (running FC3 T3 64-bit). I tested today's branch bits.
I'm using the default (gnomestripe) theme with today's build in a fresh profile. hm, could this possibly be a theme issue (there've been quite a few changes there recently)?

okay, looks like this has been around since at least the 9/21 aviary1.0 branch builds. (not as recent as I had thought.)
On Windows, I can move through these all the items with tab and shift+tab. The current item is surrounded by a dotted line. Radio buttons of choices have to be moved through with the arrow keys. (I think that's normal)
I see what Asa sees (comment 6), linux gtk2 firefox aviary 2004-10-18-20Z, default fx theme, industrial gtk theme. I.e. all is kb-navigable, but no focus indication on the twisties or their labels.
May go away in PrefWindow V but I want to be sure.
