Steps to reproduce

I am planning to stop using the Edge browser as the most annoying thing is default focus remains on browser’s back button when you use it;

  • Browse to a website. (If you press spacebar the focus is on the web page so you can scroll down, Good)

  • Browse to a link on webpage and you land on new web page. (Spacebar focus is on web page so you can scroll using spacebar, Good)

  • Press back arrow on browser. (You and back to original web page, now if you press backspace to try to scroll, it will take you back to previous web page in history, not Good)
