    Question 3.2 M2 tab key behavior

    I am having some issues with the new tab key bindings in the M1 and M2 betas of 3.2 which impact me the most in the admin app. While setting up a few new users I started entering mailbox name, password, first and last name etc. all the while hitting tab to jump to the next field, or so I thought. It wasn't until I had hammered out a password for what I thought was the second time when I noticed I still only had the mailbox name filled out while all the other fields were empty.
    I quickly realized that my tabbing had just been moving focus between the Help, Cancel and Next buttons instead of jumping fields. Being very accustomed to using the tab key while entering data into a system I was wondering whether this behavior is here to stay and whether there will be any way to change it to eliminate a lot of extraneous switching back and forth between keyboard and mouse to go from field to field. I am just wondering if this is bothering anyone else or I'm the only one who noticed so far.

    Default General tab key problems throught Zimbra web UI

    It seems to me that the Zimbra web UI has fundamental problems relating to the behavior of the Tab key.

    Oddly, I don't find much on this when searching the forums, but there are several related bugs. So I don't know if this means most people don't care, or these forums are mostly visited by systems admins who don't care...

    Personally, I find it annoying and embarrassing, it makes Zimbra look buggy and incomplete in the eyes of my customers.

    So, the solution is for people to create bugs and or vote for existing bugs. This is the only way the Zimbra development team can determine what is important to the community.

    Having said that, here is a list of existing bugs related to this issue.

    Bugzilla id:
    4336 - Hitting tab in mail compose window moves cursor to incorrect position
    4435 - admin ui new account dialog focus (shift-tab)
    4874 - Tab out of appointment auto complete does not go to next line
    9460 - Unexpected tab key behavior in Admin dialogs
    10027 - KBNav: limited focus landings when tabbing through options
    10404 - tab order FF 1.5.0.6 on Mac OS X
    10494 - Tab order not working for create new account pane

    Go look at the bugs, and if they are happening for you in current versions of Zimbra - Be sure to vote for them!
