Specifically while emptying the Junk Mail Folder, the Internet Explorer by default sets the focus to the OK button. When you press ENTER, it should complete the emptying Folder action. However, in Firefox, no focus is assigned to either of the  buttons; it does it manually. Screenshot is attached... Firefox should assign the focus automatically to the OK button and ENTER press should complete the action using Javascript. This may be a testing issue at Microsoft's end.. (?)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to hotmail
2. click on the Empty Folder checkbox on top

Actual Results:  
no focus is assigned

Expected Results:  
focus should go to OK button, and a KEY hit or ENTER should complete the Javascript action
