Description

9/9 08 m18 commercial (and recent preceding builds)

In message compose, I can't use tab to get from the subject to the body anymore.
 The input cursor flashes in the body and then goes away leaving me unable to type.

I _can_ get there by using the enter key in the subject line.  Perhaps tab got
broken when enter got fixed?

tab key problems have been reported the past days:
bug 51642 "Can't tab between form controls over a combobox"
bug 51863 "Tabbing through text forms stopps halfway"

so this might be a more general tab-bug.

As for mailnews composition there's bug 49232 "Should only be one tab from
addressing field to subject line"
49232 assigned to varada@netscape.com with status whiteboard [nsbeta3+][PDTP2]

This might be a dup?

No, this isn't a dup of Varada's tab bug.  This bug isn't about the number of
tabs required to get there (unless you count infinity :-)  This bug is about
that fact that tab used to work between the subject and the body but no longer
does work.

Accepting Bug.
This is an extension of the 49232(only one tab from addressing ->subject->body).
We just have to make sure that when the caret reaches the body it better stays 
there :-).

This also works for me now.  The new problem is the invisible input caret, but
that's not this bug.  Closing WFM.
