tab key won't focus on a button

Needs Answer

I have an applet that needs to be accessible, so the user must be able to use it with keyboard only - no mouse. I have an input box and a button. Using the TAB key when in the applet in desktop GGB 5 works perfectly. But, when I upload it to geogebra.org, only the input box gets focus and I can't tab over to the button.

I've attached the GGB 5 file that should work well, and you can find the online version here: https://www.geogebra.org/m/fdfnbney

Any thoughts on a solution?

(BTW, I originally had a checkbox for help, but that wouldn't get focus either. I thought that changing the textbox to a button would help, but it didn't

I made a screen capture video to show the behavior. Again, it works perfectly in GGB 5 on my desktop, but the uploaded online version is buggy.

So it sounds like tab did nothing for you? That's the behavior I'd like to fix, because tab is *supposed* to move focus to another object. I "fixed" the problem by telling the user to try Shift+Tab, but that's not intuitive and I still wish there was a way I could get Tab to work.

Thanks for trying - I really do appreciate your time.

Just tried Firefox - yes, it does seem to work a little better there.

I had earlier tried Chrome and Edge, and got the buggy behavior.

I think that in a input box tab has same effect than blankblankblank and GG delete it
