NVDA behaves strange when hitting uparrow at the top of a multiline edit box in Firefox/Chrome while "Automatic focus mode for caret movement" is checked #1733
Reported by Ahiiron on 2011-08-27 00:45
This is only a problem when "Automatic focus mode for caret movement" is checked in the Browse Mode dialog. With this disabled, all works as expected, NVDA will read the top line of the edit field and all is well.
After typing a few lines in a multiline edit box, then hitting up arrow several times to go to the top and eventually pop out of Focus Mode, NVDA just repeats a line two or three down from the top of the edit box, or it will say "edit multiline, blank".
this is the first line
Expected: when you start arrowing up (or pressing ctrl-home and then up arrowing), NVDA should pop you out of Focus mode and let you review the page above the edit box.
