Since bug 557087, an element can be disabled whithout having a disabled attribute because a disabled fieldset will make all its elements disabled.

Posted file testcase
A simple testcase: both input elements should appear disabled. Currently, I guess that only the second one will.
I might as well take this one along with the 'required' state bug.

Just a reminder, without this bug fix, some disabled elements will appear as enabled to users with AT.
Mounir thanks for the ping. We fixed this last month via:
http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/d925cd5764b5

(Very nice to get the ping here, thanks again)
