Bug: Keyboard trap in Rich Text Inline Editor with NVDA in Firefox 3.6 (critical?)

Hi everyone,

In testing the Rich Text Inline Editor with NVDA, I discovered a keyboard
trap in the demo.

To reproduce:
1. Start NVDA.
2. Start Firefox 3.6
3. Load the demo:
4. Begin editing the first paragraph.
5. While still editing, tab repeatedly through the document and attempt to
reach the editor that is still open.
6. You will discover that you will be stuck on an invisible, empty element
just before the editot.

With NVDA off, this is not a problem. Also not a problem in IE8. Tested in
Windows 7 using NVDA 2010.1

I have not filed a JIRA for this as I think there needs to be a little more
testing to determine the scope of the issue.

If someone has time, can someone please test in a different environment and
confirm if this is an issue with NVDA 2010.1 and Firefox 3.6, using the
above linked demo?

- Jonathan.
