Re: Firefox v4 accessibility

I work with JAWS-users and when they ALT-TAB from a website in Firefox
(e.g., to jot down some notes in Word), then ALT-TAB back to the website,
their cursors are not at the point from whence they left the website - their
cursors are usually somewhere near the top of the page - thereby forcing
them to either scroll down to the points from whence they left or do a FIND
to relocate their cursors. This is extremely cumbersome and it does not
happen in Internet Explorer. Any ideas? Thanks.
