Presumably this is to make it consistent with Safari on the Mac, where tabbing does not by default take you to every element in a web page. However in Safari, under Preferences->Advanced menu, there is an easy way to change this by clicking on the checkbox for 'Press tab to highlight each item on a web page'. Firefox on the Mac, should likewise provide an easier way to do this rather than doing an 'about:config' in the browser and editing this field to the value '7'. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to www.apple.com on Firefox on Mac. 2. Try tabbing in the web page and note that the tab images (for Store, etc.) are not accessible. 3. Repeat on a Windows machine.

It's not defaulted on mac anymore, we follow the "Full keyboard access" system preference unless you set the accessibilty.tabfocus.
