System focus does not move to edit field when "Automatic focus mode for caret movement" is enabled. #11663
Steps to reproduce:
1: Enable the option "Automatic focus mode for caret movement" in the browse mode settings of NVDA.
Focus mode is turned on, but system focus is not moved to the edit field. Because of this it is not possible to type in the edit field. To be able to type text anyway, you must switch to browse mode and then press enter or space. Then focus mode is turned on again and the system focus is moved to the edit field.
When you get to an edit field with the arrow keys, NVDA switches to focus mode and the system focus moves to the edit field.
NVDA installed/portable/running from source:
Windows 10 1909 (64-bit) build 18363.1082
Name and version of other software in use when reproducing the issue:
Microsoft Edge 85.0.564.51 and Firefox 80.0.1
Other information about your system:
Does the issue still occur after restarting your computer?
Have you tried any other versions of NVDA? If so, please report their behaviors.
In previous versions of NVDA this works as expected, the problem is caused by changes in NVDA2020.3.
If addons are disabled, is your problem still occuring?
Did you try to run the COM registry fixing tool in NVDA menu / tools?

This is a duplicate of #11654 @feerrenrut @michaelDCurran Are you planning to fix this for 2020.3? If not I'm afraid we should reconsider making focus focusable elements disabled by default as experience with it disabled and "Automatic focus mode for caret movements" enabled is sub optimal to put it politely. Also cc @jcsteh and @leonardder who have worked on focus focusable elements in the past.
Yes, I've been having odd things happening on web sites since using the new beta 3 as well, but not actually managed to figure out a one thing that creates the issue, its as if you need to visit some parts twice to make them work right.
