Bug Description

When placing feedback on a page, the feedback form appears without reloading the page. For screen reader users this can be confusing, so the 'Message' text box should be explicitly focused when the "Place feedback" link is activated.

Related: If feedback is a block on the page, the feedback form is still added to the footer (rather than to the block). Adding it after the "Place feedback" link would make the page order more logical to screen reader users.

Affects latest master (using Orca 3.4.2)

Use focus management in Feedback form (Bug #1259764)

"Place feedback" button should now focus the Message input of the Feedback
form. Also, if the Feedback block is used on a page, the feedback form is
moved so that it's under the "Place feedback" button in the HTML - this
means that the document stays in a logical order for screen reader users.
