How do you get rid of that annoying dotted-border box firefox adds to any active link? It's spoiling the look of my nice tabbed navagation scheme.
I'm sure this has been answered but none of my search queries turned up an answer.
thanks
jean

Here are some earlier discussions that may help, but they don't specifically mention FF:

[webmasterworld.com...]
[webmasterworld.com...]

It is an accessibility feature, and it's worth considering that factor well before you get rid of it. If you can retain the focus state for assistive technologies and just remove it for Firefox / visual browsers, I think that would be the best.

Thanks, tedster!
After reading the accessibility issues, I am going to check this out further to see if other accessibility options are available. I don't want folks who want to use the keyboard instead of the mouse to be denied access to the site.
cheers
