Steps to reproduce

1, Go to and click around to build up a travel log

  2. Press space

Expected: Trident has focus; the page moves down

Actual: invokes the navigation button again, going back or forward another page


Another repro:

  1. go to and do a search

  4. type some text

Expected: input is in the search box on the site

This is a regression from IE11 and versus Chrome.
