Can't navigate through page via TAB key

Posted

When I press TAB the elements of focus are only Firefox navigation elements and input fields on the page. I've recorded a video with full cycle of tabing throug all elements.

Type about:config in the address bar, and Enter.

Type tabfocus in the search at top of the page.

You likely want accessibility.tabfocus given a value of 7, but see the article below as if this value is unset, in MacOS it is meant to follow the system's Full Keyboard Access setting. Also, you might choose only a value or combination which best suits you.

Type '''about:config''' in the address bar, and Enter. Type '''tabfocus''' in the search at top of the page.

See "Use your keyboard like a mouse": https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204434

The accessibility.tabfocus pref may not exist by default, so if you want to use it instead of the system settings then you may need to create a new Integer pref with the name accessibility.tabfocus and set the value to 7 (tab through all the fields).

  • accessibility.tabfocus = 7

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
