For your information, the problem that Firefox had recently when using
keyboard in a page with a Flash object (it could enter the object but
would then be trapped) will be gone in a few weeks. Firefox will revert
its behavior to its old one and won't enter anymore a Flash object in
order to avoid being trapped. It was patched one month ago by the

The relevant bug in Bugzilla is :
Other browsers except (old?) IE seem to have the same problems, but I
