Not a security bug, clearing flag. -->Core product, not firefox specific. The DOM specs don't require focus() for HTMLAppletElement, HTMLEmebedElement, or HTMLObjectElement objects. IE apparently supports it, maybe we want to in quirks mode or something. --> enhancement.

There would be some accessibility problem if we don't support this feature, see http://www.warp.webaim.org/resource/Resource.php?assetId=2 <blockquote> Those using Mozilla, Netscape 7, or Opera will notice that the Flash content is skipped entirely when navigating with the Tab key (or Q and A keys in Opera). To access the elements within the Flash movie with these browsers, the user must use the mouse to click within the movie. At this point, you will then no longer be able to navigate outside of the Flash movie without using the mouse. This can be an issue for people with motor disabilities that must use the keyboard for navigation. </blockquote> Can someone confirem this to NEW?
