Include editable combo boxes in edit field quick navigation command #4436

This shortcut is specifically for finding the next editable text field.
That box is an editable combo box, not a normal editable text field. You can find it by pressing c.
This box is inside an application (which I'd argue is an authoring error). Applications aren't rendered into browse mode, which is why you can't locate it. This is not a bug in NVDA.

in idea it should work, but it seems i am doing something wrong.

initial implementation of t4436 is done.
for now it works only in adobeReader and gecko.
for mshtml i don't know which state to use, i think it will require a hack to accomplish this.
about webkit i have no idea.
the repo is at:

Replying to beqa:
Are there even editable combo boxes in Adobe Reader? Note that Adobe Reader doesn't support IAccessible2, so it doesn't have an editable state.
Try the IHTMLElement::isContentEditable attribute.
Ignore it. WebKit doesn't support IA2 yet, so it can't expose an editable state.
