Originally reported in ticket:3357#comment:5.

Str:
1. Open a page containing a Flash object; e.g. http://federalstudentaid.ed.gov/mystory/
2. Move to the Flash object and press enter.
3. Try to cursor around the Flash content.
Expected: You should be able ot cursor around the Flash content.
Actual: A useless window object gets focus and you have to fiddle with focus to read the content.

Originally fixed in be88fc4 (#775), but broke in 2013.1, probably due to 0b1f669 (#2454).

In Internet Explorer, It is again not necessary to press tab to interact with an embedded object (such as Flash content) after pressing enter on it.

Previously, the code assumed that all objects that might be Flash were definitely not MSHTML. However, after the change to support Flash in Windows 8 IE, this assumption is incorrect.

Brian, this should fix the issue you had with http://kingston.talking-newspapers.co.uk/ where you had to switch away and back to read the content of the object. It'd be great if you can confirm this. The fix should be available in the 15 Jul next snapshot.

Well, only just downloaded the new version but yes it does seem better behaved now. It worked in 2013.1.1 some of the time though , so maybe that odd window was not always created. Who knows, this is probably why it was not spotted back then. Its worked on some sites, but some sites tended to use misbehaving flash in any case so it will be a while till I am happy!

As I say, Its much better now, so is probably back how it used to be.

OK since yesterday I've tested it with more sites and its far more predictable now, so I think its fixed.
