I ran into a bug with the tab focus for logging in.

How to reproduce the bug:

1) Make sure you are logged out

2) Click on the "Join Daniweb" link at the top right of the page

3) Click on the "Member Log In" link at the top right of the page

4) Click on the "User Name" textbox

5) Hit Tab

Expected Behavior:

The "Password" textbox in the "DaniWeb Existing Member Login" pop-up should get the focus.

Actual Behavior:

The "Password" textbox in the "Member Login" section on the right side of the page (slightly grayed out due to the pop-up) gets focus.

The expected behavior happens when you click "Member Log In" from other pages that I tried, including the front page.

Attached is a picture of the bug. Also, I verified this bug in Firefox 6.0.2 and Chromium 12.0 in Ubuntu Linux 10.10 and in Firefox 6.0.1 and Chrome 13.0 in Windows 7.

I did some more testing on other computers running Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit and the latest version of Chrome and Firefox. I still got the same tab focus bug.

Can anyone confirm that they're seeing this, too?
