This is almost exactly the same issue as #3215, but for grid cells instead of menu items.

Per the authoring practice for grids with widgets in each cell https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices/#gridNav_inside, one of the common keyboard convention is to use the escape key to restore grid navigation while the focus in on a widget inside one of the cells.

However, when user press escape in such situation, NVDA instead switches to browse mode. This causes confusion, especially since there are also no messages announced to the user about this switch or any instructions on how to switch back.
