Some times* when I am commenting on a question (post?) and hit tab and space/enter, it sets focus to the "Post Answer" button, sending an empty answer and erasing my comment.

Can we:

  1. Check on the client side if the post body is empty, so it doesn't get submit?
  2. Have the tab work correctly?

* I don't know exactly how to reproduce it, but it happens from time to time. I am Chrome/Ubuntu


This appears to only happen if you are holding Shift down when hitting Tab. In which case, I don't know how well it could be fixed in the system.

Note that if you have already provided an answer, Shift+Tab will navigate you to the Search bar instead of the "Add Another Answer" button. Which is probably worse, actually.
