Forms mode gets activated in table cells of HTML documents, even though there may be no editable text in them.

This happens while pressing the enter key when a table cell is in focus. Some times, it also happens when a new page loads and while using arrow keys to move between cells.

Blocking #3191

I am using Internet Explorer 10. This problem can be found even in the "UserGuide" and "Commands Quick Reference" NVDA help files.

This can also be seen in the current page itself (http://www.community.nvda-project.org/ticket/3248). Forms mode can be activated on the blank line below "Owned by" line, and on the lines "milestone" and "component".

Replying to jteh:

This is specific to IE 10. Table cells have the focusable state (and data cells even seem to get focus if focus is set programmatically). Our isFocusable property returns False, so the solution is probably to make browse mode use isFocusable instead of the focusable state.
Changes:
Changed title from "Forms mode gets activated in table cells" to "IE 10: Focus mode gets activated in table cells"
Milestone changed from None to 2013.2

MSHTML NVDAObject's isFocusable property: fallback to IAccessible's focusable state for normal IMG nodes, as although they are implicitly focusable, setFocus does, and should, work. Re #3248

Stop activating focus mode for non-focusable table cells in IE 10. Fixes #3248.

Base virtualBuffer: always use an NVDAObject's isFocusable property rather than its focusable state, as isFocusable in some cases has been tailored to handle certain situations.
