This is a followup bug for bug 573102 Comment 94.

Some output in the WebConsole is inspectable - when the user clicks on it, a panel pops up (e.g. PropertyPanel or NetworkPanel). This clickable output should be keyboard accessible.

Gavin mention in comment 94, bug 573102:

> This should probably actually be keyboard accessible (i.e. tabbable and
> responsive to "Enter"). I don't think onclick on xul:labels handles that.
> Followup bug?

Hah, I didn't know we have this bug!

Yesterday I marked a TODO to report a bug about tabbing through the web console - which is broken. One can't properly keyboard-navigate through the items.

Some of the work here depends on bug 778766.
Depends on: console-output

This bug should be fixed by bug 760876. You can now tab to any link and press Enter to perform its action. We have also added keyboard shortcuts for common operations and access keys to toolbar items in other bugs.

Please file separate bugs, if needed. Thank you!
