some details: Since elements like input or textarea has own selection controller then selection we get is different from documents one. Since selection is turned into caret position then we can get result different from -1 for these controls if document is focused (see eContainedByFocus check in nsHyperTextAccessible::GetCaretOffset).
Comment on attachment 595669 [details] [diff] [review] patch its kind of weird but I think this makes sense. We should look at ways to make the check if we're focusable faster.
