Several focus and keyboard issues with editor dropdown

Reported by Michael Mathews | September 15th, 2009 @ 10:51 AM | in 2.0

I've noticed some problems with the editor dropdown relating to focus and keyboard navigation. For example:

On Safari 4 if you select some text and use the Text Format menu, after the menu closes and the text stays selected, but if you then press a left or right arrow key the effect is that the toolbar now has focus, not the text. In FF the focus goes back to the editor, while in IE 7 neither the toolbar nor the editor have focus at this point.

On IE 7 if you open the Text Format menu and then use the up or down arrows, the effect is that the active menu item changes, but if you then press the return key that menu item is not selected. Doing the same in FF causes the carat to move around in the editor (while the menu is still open), unless you mouseover on the menu, then it acts in the same way as IE except pressing return actually applies the formatting.

These behaviors are noticeably inconsistent across popular browsers.
