Bug Description

The current responsive menu design uses an <h3> with a click event to open the main menu. This is not accessible as the link cannot be focused and therefore screen reader users (probably) can't open it.

I'm not sure how much of an issue this is since screen readers on touchscreen devices may work differently to those on the desktop, but it needs testing.

On second thoughts, it's definitely an issue when using a tablet/phone with an external keyboard

Made responsive menu and tabs keyboard-accessible (Bug #1278672)

Changed the HTML to use an <a> inside the <h3> for the tab title so that
it's keyboard focusable, and use focus management when the tabs are
