What the summary says. David, do you want to find someone to fix this?

It just landed on Central. I'll give it a try and report back here with findings.

The one problem I'm seeing with the new tab page feature is that the buttons to pin and remove a site are not keyboard accessible. In browser/base/content/newTab/grid.js, they're being created with a tabindex of -1, which makes them non-tabbable.
The links and buttons themselves are exposed to assistive technologies, so is the show/hide button, so all is good on that end except for this one piece.

Sorry, forgot to mention that the pin/remove buttons are intentionally unfocusable for now. They will be once bug 716532 is fixed (which we'll do before pref'ing it on by default for Nightly).
