User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1.9) Gecko/20100317 Thunderbird/3.0.4

After entering a password, a tab should move the user to the [ok] button, but instead it moves the user to the [use password manager] check box.  This means that a user who does not want to use the password manager must tab twice after password entry *forever*.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. invoke a password dialog
2. enter a password
3. press tab
Actual Results:  
focus moves to the [use password manager] check box

Expected Results:  
focus moves to the [ok] button

You can just hit enter once you've typed the password. You don't need to tab anywhere.

This sounds INVALID. Alan why do you tab instead of typing enter ?

Why is there an "OK" button?  ;-)

I did not mean to raise an issue about best user practices,
but rather about best interface practices.
