Bug Description

It is not immediately obvious to screen reader users if a form has been rejected due to errors.
To make this more accessible, focus should be set to the form error message (on page load) if one exists.

Affects latest master (using Orca 3.4.2)

May be fixed along with Bug #1262483 since using aria-live on the error region should cause screen readers to read it out as if focus was set there.

Since the fix for Bug #1262483 sets aria-live (and role=alert) on the error region, this is no longer necessary
