So in the case of firefox the 2.1.2 criterion isn't applicable

================================
Response from the Working Group
================================
You are correct that this technique is also appropriate for Success
Criterion 2.1.1 to ensure all functionality of the content is operable
by keyboard. Since this is a technique that can be employed to address
an incompatibility in particular browsing environments we will add it
to Success Criterion 2.1.1.

However, it is still sometimes possible for users to be trapped in
Flash content in some situations so we will continue to list it under
2.1.2 as well.

The title of the technique has been modified to "Providing keyboard
access to a Flash object and avoiding a keyboard trap". The first
sentence in the Description section has been modified to "The
objective of this technique is to allow keyboard focus to move to and
from Flash content embedded in a web page."
