Jelly Bean introduces a lot more API for accessibility, without supporting it we cannot take advantage of some of the JB accessibility features like flick navigation and improved explore by touch.

In addition to this patch needing heavy rebasing, it also has a compile failure now at this line:

            final LayerView view = GeckoApp.mAppContext.getLayerController().getView();

in Looks like other bugs pulled out something from under it and the method to get the layer view must be changed.

Just a heads-up, I haven't actually tried to solve this.
LayerController was folded into GeckoLayerClient, so you'll need to replace that line with

final LayerView view = GeckoApp.mAppContext.getLayerClient().getView();

Note that bug 781220 will further refactor some of this code and the line will have to be changed to

final LayerView view = GeckoApp.mAppContext.getLayerView();

If you land first I can update the patches in bug 781220, but just a heads-up.
Rebased. Compiles, but I am not sure if this is before or after kats's refactor.
