I'm not sure if this is a Dojo bug or a Firefox one. I tested Minefield nightly 3.0b3pre (2008-01-07)

To reproduce:

  • open the Microsoft Inspect tool
  • open dijit/tests/form/test_Slider.html
  • tab to the first slider


  • Value: 10.0 %


  • Value: none [false]

This bug is caused by a behaviour in FF3: values of sliders are not available via MSAA if they have an onclick handler. I've filed a bug against Mozilla:

The Dijit slider attaches an onclick handler in the slider templates:


The slider _onHandlerClick() method sets focus to the handle. While I think this is a bug in Mozilla, I'm not sure that we need this click handler?
