Checkbox: Missing focus box on Firefox

There is no focus box on dojo checkboxes or radio buttons. The styling on radio buttons seems fairly clear as an indicator. However, since it's a different means of conveying the focus indicator it would be confusing to users. For unchecked checkboxes I don't see any change and for checked checkboxes I don't think changing the style to have the shading gradient flip directions is helpful enough.

This is also a Firefox issue. In IE the text for the checkbox gets the focus box. This is done by IE and not within Dojo because the Dojo checkbox just overlay's a standard HTML checkbox. Firefox does not put the focus box on the label, making it hard to distinguish even the normal checkbox found on the checkbox test page (cb7). Dojo could do a better job of showing focus on checkboxes but Firefox could as well.

Looks like a dup of #4099?
