What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

On Mathematics, Arqade, Electrical Engineering, and Ask Different (to list those which I have noticed), the styling on form submit buttons (such as “Post Your Question” and “Save Edits”) removes all cues indicating that the button has the focus. This is a minor usability problem for me — I like to operate forms by keyboard and when I tab past the text fields there is no cue for whether the focus has gone to the button, or some other control — and I am given to understand it is a larger (accessibility) problem for others.

I request that the stylesheets for those sites which have this problem be changed such that there is some focus indication. I don't care whether it is the browser default or something custom.

(Since I originally wrote this question, I note that some more recently launched/designed sites, such as skeptics.SE and scifi.SE, don't have this problem. Good! But the old instances are still around.)
