Details

This spinner http://archive.dojotoolkit.org/nightly/dojotoolkit/dijit/tests/form/test_Slider.html is an example where there are extra 'section's in the accessible tree which make up the construct of the spinner.  These accessible nodes should not be exposed in the accessible hierarchy.
Is this the same as bug 395258. Can they somehow be merged into one bug for spinners? There is also the XUL spinner bug 365893.
For my purposes this is more like https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=390154 .  The problem is that there are so many accessible objects associated with this widget.  I was hoping that only a single accessible object could be exposed for a spinner.

Note: the link in the opening comment should be http://archive.dojotoolkit.org/nightly/dojotoolkit/dijit/tests/form/test_Spinner.html
If I get right then 'section' accessibles shouldn't be accessible because their div nodes has 'presentation' role but those divs contains @tabindex="-1" attribute that leads nodes are focusable and therefore we expose accessbiles for them. So, invalid?
As Surkov says, this is not a bug in Mozilla.

Scott, can you file a bug on Dojo to remove the unnecessary tabindex="-1" on those divs? It's forcing the creation of an accessible even though there is role="presentation".
