Tab key no longer works, I've reverted to default in the keyboard shortcuts window in system preferences and had a look through Firefox preferences but can't work out what's changed since my little boy decided to do some keyboard shortcuts of his own....

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== My little boy got his hands on the keyboard.........

Note: In OS X (as of 2005-01), if this preference is not explicitly set, the “Full Keyboard Access” setting in System Preferences will be honored. All builds before that date (e.g., Firefox 1.0.x) will ignore that setting.
