Can't move caret into floats using up/down arrow keys
In caret browsing mode: - Go to http://www.mozilla.org/about/ - Place the caret somewhere in the footer. - Try using up-arrow to move into the main content. - Notice that the page scrolls all the way to the top, and the caret disappears. This is because the main content portion of the page is a float. First reported by Willie Walker in bug 205846 comment 9 (step #4). The attached testcase shows that the problem exists in both directions (you can't enter a float using down-arrow either. In both cases, the caret skips the float. Additionally, placing the caret on the first line of the float (e.g. using the mouse), and then pressing up-arrow, moves the caret to the row before the one preceding the float. Bug 334626 (fixed) was about a similar problem for left/right arrows.
Not a blocker since this isn't a regression

Hi Uri, Ginn: any ideas on this bug and why it is so difficult to fix? Are there any workarounds that can be done in Orca or Gecko for this?
Dear all, Is anybody still able to reproduce this bug ? In a test on Firefox Nightly on Debian GNU/Linux 8.8 with Orca 3.24 I can't reproduce the issue with the attached testcase. Best regards.
Not relevant on Windows, since we don't use Caret Browsing with screen readers, and I cannot visually verify this bug. Leaving the NI for Joanie to look at it from the Orca perspective.
Closing as WONTFIX. Orca does its own caret navigation.
