The selection bar is lost when scrolling add-ons list with the keyboard, and the list is is longer then one visible screen - i.e. the vertival scrollbar is active.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open add-ons manager (^+Shift+A )---the vertical scrollbar of this window should be active (many add-ons, long list)
2. press "down" key on the keyboard; the selection bar appears. after scrolling down (with the keyboard) it suddenly disappears
Actual Results:  
no selection bar.

Expected Results:  
selection bar should go down and scroll the list of add-ons
I see different behavior, when scrolling in the addons manager, the following occurs:

If I highlight (i.e. by clicking) a single addon then up/down keys work fine but the right/left keys don't do anything, if I click on one of the icons on top (i.e. plugins, extensions) then up/down/right/left all scroll through the tabs (plugins, extensions) and I can't access any single addon at all.

Accessibility problem?

Please can you attach copies of extensions.log, extensions.ini, extensions.cache and extensions.rdf from your profile folder to this bug report. If some of them don't exist let me know.

Different issue which maybe should be filed, but all that is happening is that the different areas have focus, I think it is a reasonable behaviour.

sorry for late response, I was on holidays. unfortunately I don't know how to attach the files to this website; the mail i tried to sent to you was bounced.
the only files that don't exists is extensions.cache.
