Every other browser in existence uses the :active pseudoclass for active (keyboard-selected) links.  Firefox doesn't; instead, it uses :focus.  I'm pretty sure :active is the standard way of specifying active links in CSS, so it should at least be supported.

I'm afraid that the CSS spec disagrees with you:

"The :active pseudo-class applies while an element is being activated by the user. For example, between the times the user presses the mouse button and releases it."

The active pseudo class is used in this way.
