Tabbing to a checkbox not working

Howdy, I installed Haiku R39551 GCC2Hybrid in VirtualBox, and installed WebPostiive (hrev545). I noticed that I can tab between different boxes when filling in a form (for instance the username and password fields on a signon page), but that I cannot tab to a checkbox for it to save my password. I confirmed this on Gmail and Facebook's login pages.

From the webkit-dev ML:

Safari is unique among desktop browsers in that "full keyboard access" (FKA) is off by default, and the Tab key moves focus only to textfields and select elements. You can modify this behavior using a system-wide setting (System Prefs > Keyboard > Shortcuts > All Controls) and/or a Safari-specific setting (Safari > Prefs > Advanced > Press Tab to…). If you change both settings, you'll have a keyboard focus behavior that is similar to that of other desktop browsers, such that every "focusable" control appears in the sequential Tab order.

Changing these settings default value in our port may help.
