Labels on the search and location boxes are not Read
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9a6pre) Gecko/20070612 Minefield/3.0a6pre Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9a6pre) Gecko/20070612 Minefield/3.0a6pre Screen-readers are not reading the labels associated with the search and location boxs in FF3. This could be because the labels don't exist. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Firefox 3. Press ctrl+l 2. If you wish, press tab to get to the search box. 3. Actual Results: You hear the type of field, i.e. edit or edit combo, but not it's name. Expected Results: Same behavior as FF2. Upon pressing ctrl+l you should hear "Location" foby the field type. Pressing ttab should yield "search." Sorry for the mess. I'll clean up once I go back to FF2.
Summary: Labels on the search and location boxes are not rad. → Labels on the search and location boxes are not Read.
Comment on attachment 268203 [details] [diff] [review] Fix nsHTMLTextFieldAccessible() so that XUL parent's name is reused for it, 2) Provide nice accessible name for <searchbox> e.g. "Search Google" I guess... note we didn't do this for the grayed-out text in this field because of engines like "MSN Search"; for the screen-reader case that's still better though. please add the readonly attribute to your getter, r=me otherwise.
