Description: Suppose you browse a page named index.htm containing three links
Link1, Link2 and Link3.If you use the tab key to move inside the page you can go
to Link2 with the tab key. At this time if you press enter key, you will jump to
the page adressed by Link2. This is correctIf then you strike backspace you will
recover the page index.htm but the focus returns to top of page, instead of
recovering the Link2 position.This behavior is different from Internet
Explorer's one, and represent a problem especially if the page index.htm
contains a whole list of links.Indeed, if it is the case, it will be cumbersome
to be positionned at top of list each time we go back to index page.
