User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20060202 Fedora/1.0.7-1.2.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7
Description of problem:
Pressing TAB key at the gnome login screen does not switch the focus from the "user name" field to the Language-Session-Reboot-Shutdown options; pressing TAB-key makes tabulation steps in the username field (that does not make sence). Situation becomes obviously faulty when a mouse misfunction is the reason to reboot the system, you see the reboot button but you can not reach it with the keyboard.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. get to the gnome login screen
2. press the TAB key
Actual Results: Tabulation steps are done in the username field.
Expected Results: Switching the focuse to Language-Session-Reboot-Sutdown options.
Situation becomes obviously faulty when a mouse misfunction is the reason to reboot the system, you see the reboot button but you can not reach it with the keyboard.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
