That's weird. I just logged out and tried to create a new account,
on firefox with firebug enabled (and I did it outside Novell).
Typing TABs just worked without almost no time on the registration

I rather doubt you have some conflicting extensions that cause
the actual issue (As I have about 20 extensions installed, I have
similar trouble for some websites). Also, Firefox was
almost just released and some extensions might need updates. was sort of unstable and caused some mandatory upadtes
to some extensions. Similar troubles could happen to the new one.
