When in Internet Explorer8, nvda will sometimes jump to the address bar when tabbing with in a group of links. Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to http://radio.h4xed.us
  2. Up or down arrow until nvda says "List with 4 items homelink, tune in link," etc.
  3. Press tab once while in this list.

Actual results: nvda jumps to the address bar.

Expected results: NVDA should focuss on the first link. This only happens in a new browsing session and after pressing up arrow again the issue goes away. This does not happen in firefox 3.6.3. Using R3577.

I suppose the issue wasn't actually fixed, as it keeps happening. Same resulting thing happens as before, only when starting a new browsing session. Happens also in firefox 4.0 beta2. Using r 3680 snapshot.

Technical info: !VirtualBuffer._tabOverride is supposed to be used when tabbing in buffers if the cursor isn't within the focus. Unfortunately, when the focus is the document (which it is initially), everything will be considered to be within the focus. We probably need to rethink the condition that determines when _tabOverride gets used.
