1. Open Tools/Add-Ons.
2. focus lands on an "unknown object" as the screen reader says.
3. Press Tab.

Result: Focus is now in the list of manager categories.

4. Press Shift+Tab.

Result: No change.
Expected: Land on tab bar.

5. Press Shift+Tab again.

Result: Now landed on tab bar.

6. Press Tab.

Expected: Land in list of categories.
Actual: No response, focus doesn't seem to shift.

7. Press Tab again.

Result: Focus now lands in the Manager categories list.

I now also see this when opening the in-content Tools/Options dialog. And probably also the ones introduced in bug 1021618.

This is still happening in current nightlies, and has become more apparent now that Settings has also been moved to a content tab. Blair, any good idea about why this is happening?
