Tabbing skips over text input after clicking it STEPS TO REPRODUCE 1. load any page with a text input control 2. mouse left-click in the text input control 3. mouse left-click in the URL bar 4. TAB until you reach the text input control ACTUAL RESULTS Tabbing skips over the text input control and focus the next item in the tabbing order instead. Testcase: data:text/html,<input> PLATFORM & BUILDS TESTED Bug occurs in SeaMonkey 2005-10-05-03 trunk Linux Regression window 2004-11-27-07 -- 2004-12-06-08
regressed bewteen 2004-12-01-06 and 2004-12-02-05, but there's a lot that landed in that range.
> 3. mouse left-click in the URL bar > 4. TAB until you reach the text input control * Tab skips over everything before the text input as well. * This isn't specific to text inputs. Tabbing comes out of the search bar and goes right to the next item * IE works the same way. It's just focus memory. We start tabbing in the document relative to where you were last in the document. Not sure this is really a bug.
So why is there a difference between these two testcases: data:text/html,<input> data:text/html,<button>button</button> In the first, we focus what comes after the text input. In the second we focus the button.
I see identical behavior on the two testcases in comment 3...
