In Mozilla applications, focus is normally indicated by a dotted outline surrounding the element. By default, only a few elements visually indicate whether they have focus (links, form controls, etc.). When this preference is true, any focused element will display a focus ring around it.

Possible values and their effects


Display the focus ring around any and all focused elements (matched by the CSS selector :focus).


Limit the focus ring to the default set of focusable elements (matched by the CSS selector *|*:link:focus, *|*:visited:focus). (Default)
