  1. Open test page in FireFox?.
  2. Focus on the checkbox in 'Navigation menu" using keyboard.
  3. Press SPACE key to operate it, changing its "checked" status.
  4. Try to speed up pressing SPACE key.
  5. The status of checkbox doesn't change if press SPACE key too often.

This issue happens in FireFox?(ESR 17 and v23) This issue doesn't happen on dijit/form/Checkbox.

The problem is in _KeyNavMixin. The first keypress events start a keyboard search, and then for subsequent keydown events, _KeyNavMixin calls evt.stopImmediatePropagation(), preventing a11click.js from seeing the click.

The space key shouldn't start a keyboard search. It would be OK to interpret SPACE as the continuation of a keyboard search, but it shouldn't start one.
