This is the second of my reported bugs that I am reclassifying as a blocker. I am doing so because I feel that this bug is a major usability problem. I hope that whoever reviews this reclassification will agree with me. Note that when running the code, tab from the first input and you'll see that the div receives focus. This makes absolutely no sense from a usability perspective. I should note that IE, Chrome, Safari and Opera do not suffer from the bug.
Severity: major → blocker
Not a blocker. Only bugs that stop the development and testing process for Mozilla are blockers: blocker Blocks development and/or testing work critical crashes, loss of data, severe memory leak major major loss of function normal regular issue, some loss of functionality under specific circumstances minor minor loss of function, or other problem where easy workaround is present trivial cosmetic problem like misspelled words or misaligned text enhancement feature requests Severity is defined objectively according to the standards of the project, and has nothing to do with the importance of a bug, but rather it's impact as it relates to the entire project and userbase.
Severity: blocker → normal
This is a major issue for Accessibility User. The user have to tab unnecessarily through these DIVS and are confused with the behavior. Please consider this for resolution ASAP
There is a testcase in attachment 8643317 [details]. Neil, is this behavior intentional?

Yes, any scrollable area that doesn't have both directions set to hidden is focusable so that keyboard-only users can scroll the content.
