Tabbing appears to be broken

Without focus highlighting on many links, it is hard to tell, but it looks like tabbing is currently not respecting tabIndexes (tabIndices?)

Going from a title to a post box or from the post box to the "Post Reply" button is not working. This has started very recently, as I use <tab><space> to post and I haven't noticed it until this evening.

Windows 10 x64
Version 62.0.3202.94 (Official Build) (64-bit)
No Forum Stylesheet
I do use uBlock, but the issue presents itself with uBlock disabled as well

    Just opening Edge to test, it isn't working here either. Tabbing from the Reply box goes straight to the "BBCode" link below the post, the next is to the "Penny Arcade Forums" link at the top before the > in the navigation tray.

    Microsoft Edge 41.16299.15.0
    No extensions at all installed on this browser.

    Same issue in Chrome.

    Version 62.0.3202.62 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    Luckily the BBCode link loads in a new tab/window, so it doesn't erase the post contents, but it is a bit jarring.

    Edit: I also fail at reading and see that I am running the same version as Delmain.

    Popped in to see if this had been reported.

    Definitely been going on for a couple of days now, minimum. I doubt it's been a full week, but it's ... been a full week in other ways, so.

    Mostly use Opera (49.0.2725.64 (PGO) ), on Windows 10 x64 Home
    I use Ye Olde Style stylesheet

    Firefox 58.0b13 (64-bit) also encounters this 'bug'.

    edit: didn't notice that this was dated the 8th. I don't remember having the problem at that time. Looking into it, I have no posts between the 8 and 10th, inclusive.

    So, I guess this is an update that it's begun acting up again.

    I have been using a userscript in Chrome to work around the problem, so I'm not sure if it was popping up during the Holiday Forums. Just opening up Edge to try again in a browser without addons.

    Yep, still messed up here as well. First tab is to the BBCode link

    Just in case anyone else is annoyed by this, I have a (very simple and probably inefficient) userscript that just force moves the focus from the text box to the Reply button on <tab> press
