Editor: two shift-tabs needed to leave toolbar (FF)

On FF (all versions), load test_Editor.html and tab into the content area of editor1, or any editor.

Shift-tab once will navigate back to the toolbar, but shift-tabbing again doesn't leave the toolbar. Need to shift-tab twice to get out of the toolbar.

Works correctly on IE and Safari. mentions problems with FF2 and IE but nothing about FF >= 3.

This is different than #9558 and, although similar to #8987, not the same thing.

(In [19099]) Add test for tabbing and shift-tabbing around the Editor widget. Working on FF and IE, although not safari (but that seems to be a problem with DOH rather than w/the editor?)

Refs #9558, #9612, #8987.

This has been introduced since 1.2.3 as shift-tabbing from the toolbar works correctly in in FF 3.5

There is information on Firefox 3 in the editor documentation under Accessibility Known issues. In the same paragraph that discusses tabbing twice to get out of the editor is the following, "Even though Firefox 3 now supports the use of the contentEditable attribute to create the editor using a div element, the dijit editor is still implemented using an iframe in Firefox 3 and this tabbing issue remains."

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Fixed by [20723]: fixes #10232 No longer need to special case the tab key in Firefox 3 and beyond. Also do not need the additional labels as JAWS 11 will announce the edit area as editable. Updated the robot test files to remove the extra tab key that used to be needed to exit the editor in FF. !strict
