Steps to reproduce

just try play with the simplest html:

<input type=text />
<input type=file />
<input type=text />

tab to focus on each of them, you will see type=file takes 2 tabs,
when using shift-tab in third element, it goes to second, which is good. another shift-tab will go to third element again!

  • Hi!

    This is behavior that was implemented in Internet Explorer. This allows users to efficiently focus control parts back and forth. For now, I’ll resolve this as By Design.
