Tabs: tab selection with Safari and Chrome since jQueryUI 1.9.0

Reported by: lgaudouen Owned by: lgaudouen
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.10.0

Bug tested with Chrome v 23.0.1271.91 and Safari 5.1.7 and appearing with jQuery UI 1.9.0, 1.9.1 and 1.9.2.

OK with jQuery UI 1.8.23 and earlier.

When clicking on a tab, a inappropriate border appears and stays until it lost the focus.

Are you talking about the focus ring? If so, this is not a bug.

I just tested the jQuery UI 1.8.24 (the legacy version) and it works fine, ie without focus disturbance (ugly colored border for Chrome (not a color of my custom theme), large border around the tab for Safari and a tolarable dhashed inset border for IE8).

This problem occurred the 1.9.0 version and I'm back on the 1.8.24 version.

That's the native focus outline. Please use the forums or StackOverflow for help on how to remove it.

Thank's for a so information I did not need.

The problem of the ugly appearance of the focus on some elements as the headaer of each tab) has been solved until the 1.9.0 and I encourage you to look at the difference with version 1.8.24.

I'm aware of the difference; I'm responsible for the change. The native focus rings exist for accessibility/usability reasons. We will not remove them. If you really want them gone, remove them yourself.

"The native focus rings exist for accessibility/usability reasons"

Perhaps could you explain the goals of that.

This isn't really the place to discuss that, but gives a decent overview.
