Bug #546068

Jason White-14
Hello,

The last comment on bug #546068 recommends fixing this regression for Firefox
5, but there's no follow-up to indicate that this ever happened.

As I understand it, this bug is the reason why, when I issue the tab or
shift-tab commands in Firefox with Orca, it routinely fails to move the focus
to the correct UI element. this really is the single most serious
accessibility bug that I and other Linux users encounter with Firefox, so I'm
wondering whether, assuming that it's still open, and given that it has been
present for a long time now, it could be brought to the attention of whoever
is the maintainer of the relevant module in Gecko, or at least someone who
knows that code very well and who could write a patch which conclusively
addresses the issue without introducing further regressions.

Hi, Jason. Thank you for bringing it up. I'll manage it to get fixed.
