When I'm using tab to move the focus around on the page, most things have a visual indication of where the focus is (which is a relatively recent change; thank you). I often use this to flag comments - if I click on a link to a comment, I can press tab once and it will focus on the upvote button; another press and it focuses on the flag icon. I use this fairly often.
So I was surprised this morning when I noticed that the focus on the flag icon seems to have vanished. While the focus still moves to the flag, and pressing enter presses it, it no longer has a visual indicator. As I pointed out almost exactly a year ago, it's important that things have a visual indicator when the keyboard focus is on it.
Here are some screenshots that show what I mean. (Comment chosen at random.)
This is a focus on the upvote button:
Then I press tab once and I see this:
...no focus indicator. If I press enter, though, it will open the flag dialogue.
And if I press tab again, the focus moves to the user link, which still has a focus indicator:
It seems like just the focus indicator on the flag icon has disappeared, very recently. (I'm 99.99% sure it was there.) Could we please put it back?
I'm using Chrome on Ubuntu.
