passes: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8a5) Gecko/20041010 Firefox/0.9.1+

fails: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8a5) Gecko/20041029 Firefox/0.9.1+

I can't get a smaller regression window easily because there's a large gap in http://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/.

Aaron, could this regression be due to the change from bug 258514?

Hi,

I have tested this issue on the latest Firefox (45.0.1) release, latest Nightly (48.0a1 Build ID: 20160328030215) build and it is still reproducible. I have tested this using the provided test case from comment 2. After I have pressed the first link, the "target" link does not get focus.

Thanks,
Cosmin.
