User failed to move cursor in this webpage backwards in caret browsing mode.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Firefox and go to website.
2. Press F7 to turn caret browsing mode on, the cursor will stop before 'mozilla'.
3. Press Right arrow key to move focus to Products link.
4. Press Right arrow key to move focus rightwards.
5. Press Shift+Tab to move cursor to 'mozilla' pic again.
6. Press Tab to move cursor to Products link, then press Right arrow key to navigate the cursor through the characters.
7. Press Left arrow key to navigate the cursor backwards.
8. Press Tab to move focus to Firefox1.5 pic.
9. Press Right/Left arrow continuously to browse the webpage.
10. Press Up/Down arrow to browse this website.
Actual Results:  
After step4, user could not navigate the cursor through characters while this can be done according to step6.

After step7, user failed to move cursor backwards. The cursor was blocked.

After step9, cursor will stop before the pic layer on right side and skip the words followed after Firefox1.5 pic.

After step10, the link and words in middle frame will be skipped.

Expected Results:  
Web content should be viewed successfully in caret mode. This bug will effect normal keyboard navigation user slightly, but it will effect blind user seriously, who depends on keyboard navigation and screen reader function.
