Closed Bug 646377 Opened 13 years ago Closed 12 years ago
Focus event fired for accessible in previously active tab after opening a new tab from menu
Str: 1. Open a document in one tab. 2. Press alt+f to access the File menu, then select New Tab. Expected: A focus event should be fired on the Location bar. Actual: A focus event is (correctly) fired on the Location Bar. However, a focus event is then incorrectly fired in the previously active tab (step 1), thus overriding the correct focus. This occurs whenever a new tab is opened using a menu; e.g. History -> Recently Closed Tabs or Tools -> Add-ons Manager. It does not occur when opening new tabs using keyboard shortcuts (and I assume clicking buttons); e.g. control+t. This bug means that focus appears to be in the previous document when screen reader users open a new tab from a menu. Screen reader users have to move the focus in some way to restore focus to the correct tab, which is annoying at best and extremely confusing at worst. This does not occur in Firefox 3.6.
Jamie, I can't see it on trunk. Can you?
