Loses (resets) focused link when going back to a page
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 I use keyboard (tab key) to navigate links. I frequently hit tab a bunch of times to select a link, then hit enter to open in (in the same window/browser tab), then hit backspace to go back to the original page. So far so good. Now that I'm back to the original page, I would like to hit tab once to select the next link. Instead, FF gets amnesia and the tab key starts again from link #1. IE works as desired - it remembers the selected link if I go back to the page. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open any page (call it pageA) 2. Hit tab a few times to select a link (linkB). Hit enter to open the link. 3. Hit backspace to go back to pageA. 4. LinkB should be selected and hitting tab once should take me to the link right after linkB. Instead, the tab traversal gets reset to the start of page. Actual Results: FF forgets the currently selected link. Expected Results: Should remember the selected link and restart tab traversal with it.
