Bug Description

When external media (eg. a YouTube video) is added to a page, they appear to trap keyboard focus: When you tab onto the frame keyboard focus seems to disappear (ie. there is no longer a visibly focused element) and pressing tab multiple times doesn't move focus away from the media block.
This may be an issue with the sites themselves or it may be an issue with the way they're embedded into the page.

OK, looks like this is a browser issue with Flash videos. A fix is to add ?html5=1 to YouTube embed URLs but other sites won't have an HTML5 version ... looks like this is something we can't fix
