      Description

      When following a new renderURL within a portlet (e.g. tabs within a portlet) the page refresh loses the current keyboard focus. It would be a more accessible if the current keyboard focus was restored after the new page has been loaded so that a user does not need to press tab several times to get back to where they left off.

      Steps
      1. Navigate to Liferay page with Message Boards portlet
      2. Focus the search field within the portlet
      3. Select the "Recent Posts" tab within the portlet

      Expected: Focus remains in or near the search field or selected tab
      Result: Focus is lost and user must tab through all the leading elements of the page
