Unrelated text on the page highlighted as keyboard used to moved through column headers.


This is a fun little bug.

It occurs in Firefox only.
  1. Give focus to the grid (alt+j).
  2. Press ctrl + shift + right to navigate the column headers.
  3. Text above the table is now highlighted as you navigate with the keyboard.
I've attached an animated gif to demonstrate.

Can you investigate please?
