Open any local folder (type C:<enter> in address input field) 1. Arrow keys don't move cursor (even pressing <tab> does not help) You have to click on something with a mouse first. 2. Now, press <tab> once. Cursor grays out, but what have got focus now? Cursor keys do not have any effect. Press <tab> again. Now we are at address input field. ok. Press <tab> several times and try to understand where you are... a little bit weird, eh? :-) 3. Try to hold down <donw arrow> while in dir listing. Cursor movement is sluggish even on PIII 600... 4. Navigate to some *.htm[l] file and press Enter. Nothing. Mozilla isn't my default browser, but it is clear that I wanted it to be opened! Mouse doubleclick works.
Please file these as 4 separate bugs. ALso, check for duplicates -- I'm pretty sure that #2 is already filed, and others may be too.
Summary: Keyboard navigation is not friendly → Keyboard focus/navigation messed up in local directory view
#4 is a dup of a bug i had filed [originally for the linux file picker, though], bug 80373.
i think this will belong to widgets/trees eventually if there is a bug left when we're done complaining about dupes.
#2 is due to lack of focus feebback in outliners and trees (without items selected). I've posted a fix (with r=) at 64076
getting off unconfirmed.

Actually, keyboard navigation is bug 29030. Updating summary.
Summary: Keyboard focus/navigation messed up in local directory view → [xul direviewer] focus messed up
Given the <tree>-><listbox> changes, which mean that <tree> will become <outliner> automatically (and my current time constraints), I'm going to push this off for the moment. 0.9.8 is out for me, so that means 0.9.9 The bugs being changed this way either require <outliner> support, or would be a lot easier with such support
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.7 → mozilla0.9.9
OK, moving all XUL dirviewer bugs to post 1.0. I don't want to be doing this, but there are only so many hours in the day. These will be taken earlier if someone submits a patch, or I find time.
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.9 → mozilla1.0.1
Following the roadmap, 1.0.1 is a maintenance release, so pushing off features (xul direviewer) to 1.1
Target Milestone: mozilla1.0.1 → mozilla1.1
xul dirviewer bugs -> 1.2. I have no time..
Target Milestone: mozilla1.1alpha → mozilla1.2alpha
Summary: [xul direviewer] focus messed up → dirviewer focus issues
Whiteboard: [xul dirviewer]
