Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kdebase

Release: 6.10
Codename: edgy

I have this problem in all gtk applications i use(firefox, scite,
eclipse). Whenever such an app displays a form to me and i want to cycle
through the form's fields by hitting the TAB key, no focus rect is
drawed over the current widget.

You can reproduce easily in firefox:
1.) open firefox
2.) open privacy form(CTRL + SHIFT + DEL)
3.) hit tab
You can see that no focus border is drawn over the focused widget.

I have found a workaround:
Go to: system settings > gtk styles & fonts > gtk styles
Check: "Use another style"
Choose: "Raleigh"
With the raleigh style this problem does not exist. 
But be warned the look and feel is not so nice with raleigh.

I also confirmed this bug on a new installation on an other hardware.

** Affects: kdebase (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Undecided
         Status: Unconfirmed
