Arrow Key Navigation through Tabs not possible after Firefox 2
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; de; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20081217 Firefox/184.108.40.206 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; de; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20081217 Firefox/18.104.22.168 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) In Firefox 2, you were able to navigate through the Tab bar by using just the arrow keys. It was (only) possible after setting focus to a tab by clicking it twice, which switched the focus from the actual Tab content (web site) to the Tab bar. This is a desireable behaviour and should find it's way back to Firefox. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start Firefox 2. 2. Open a few Tabs. 3. Set Focus to your active Tab by double clicking it -- you should receive a visual indication similar to what the standard outline setting (CSS) does with links in common browsers. Actual Results: Easier navigation by keyboard. Ctrl(+Shift)+Tab is NOT an option.
