Cursor Doesn't Default To HTTP Box In Insert From URL

Component: Media Keywords:
Focuses: ui, accessibility Cc:


In previous versions, when selecting 'Insert from URL' in the media adder, the cursor was automatically placed in the URL box, allowing you to simply paste the URL after clicking 'Insert from URL'. That's no longer the case in 5.3 and requires the additional click in the http:// box.

@ProblemSolved thanks for your report and welcome to Trac!

This change is intentional and was implemented as part of #43169. Moving focus programmatically is often an assumption on a specific user flow that may or may not be the intended one. It's particularly unexpected for keyboard users and assistive technology users, as focus is moved without any prior warning and leads to a complete loss of context. As such, moving focus should generally be avoided and only implemented in very specific cases.
Also, considering that the media modal left menu is now an ARIA tab interface, moving focus would be even more unexpected. See [46363].
