colorful icon tab strip in Page Info and Add-ons doesn't indicate keyboard focus
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b1pre) Gecko/20080904035000 Minefield/3.1b1pre Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b1pre) Gecko/20080904035000 Minefield/3.1b1pre You can move the keyboard focus to the colorful icon tab strip in Tools > Page Info and in Tools > Add-ons, but there's no indication when it's in there. This is especially important while bug 453714 remains open: the only way to switch tabs from the keyboard is to set the focus to the tab strip then use the arrow keys. The old plain tabbed dialog for Tools > Page Info in Firefox 188.8.131.52 showed a dotted line in the tab that has the keyboard focus/ Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Choose Tools > Page Info or Tools > Add-ons 2. Press tab repeatedly Actual Results: As the keyboard focus moves through each item in the dialog, each highlights in some way. Until the focus enters the icon tab strip, where there's no highlight. Expected Results: Some visual indication of keyboard focus. Maybe this and bug 453714 are bugs with some XUL component; I don't know the technical term for "colorful icon tab strip".
See bug 334370 - the technical term is "XUL radiogroup pretending to be a tabbox" whether it's within the prefwindow binding or copied into the window's own XUL as it is for the imitators, and the problem with showing focus is that the powers that be will want that focus indicator to work like a tabbox, showing an outline if you move focus there with the keyboard, or if you click on something that's already focused from a previous click, but not on the initial click.
