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

Hi everyone,

I did a little more investigation. Once focus is on the empty element
pressing Enter would then place focus into the Tiny MCE editor thus allowing
the user to use the keyboard again.

Still an issue however since there's no way for a keyboard user to know how
to get out of the trap aside from hitting random keys.

- Jonathan.
