Editor - tabulator field order has changed since 8.16.1


we have upgraded Jira DC from 8.13.0 to 8.16.1.

Since 8.16.1 the "tab-order" (fields to be selected when using tab-key) in the editor seems to be changed.

Previously, we were able to switch from assignee to comment with one tab.
Now, having field assigne selected, navigating with tab will select the fields in the editor (style, bold, italic, underline, .......). The actual comment-field will first be selected after all the editor-fields have been walked through.

This is an annoying change, as our power-users are used to quickly press tab to go to the comment field. Now it needs 10 tab's or using the mouse.


I have checked the release-notes, but could not find anything related to the editor (except one fix regarding cookies and https / JRASERVER-72252)


Anyone an idea how the order can be changed? Anyone an idea on which change this new behaviour is based on?

Thanks for your feedback.

Regards, Benjamin
