Shift-Tab does not move the focus backwards
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1b2pre) Gecko Build Identifier: MOZILLA_VERSION 1.9.1b2pre Pressing Tab moves the focus forward as expected, but Shift-Tab does not move it at all. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to a website with multiple focusable elements (links, input fields, ..) 2. Try to move the focus with Shift-Tab Actual Results: Nothing happens Expected Results: Focus should move backwards in the tab-order.
The cause of the problem is, that Qt has a special virtual key code for "Backtab" which is not mapped to a NS_VK_* code. The patch adds a line to nsQtKeyUtils.cpp that maps it to NS_VK_TAB. It seems this should be ok, because the shift-state is handled extra anyway.
