Summary0017844: Arrow keys don't navigate between items correctly in some views
DescriptionWhen the user attempts to use the arrow keys to navigate within a view, it usually works, except for the following cases:

1) When navigating between 'sections' in a browser view. e.g.
Genres > GenreName [Browser]: When navigating down from the Artists section, the user has to press the DOWN arrow 4 times before focus switches to the Albums section, and then another 4 times before focus switches to the Tracks section. The workaround is to use the TAB key to switch sections, but this isn't intuitive.

2) When navigating in Genres > GenreName [list(by album], pressing the DOWN arrow works correctly but often results in 'false' selection of another track (i.e. occasionally other tracks appear selected even though they're not).

EDIT: This issue also applies to the tree. i.e. if the cursor is towards the top of the tree and the user clicks DOWN to navigate lower and scroll to lower portions of the tree, then the mouse cursor continues to remain active and highlight the portions of the tree that scroll by it!

3) When navigating in Artists > ArtistName [Browser], pressing DOWN fails to advance to the Albums section. This seems to be a different problem than 1). In this case, the issue appears to be that focus doesn't rest in the main panel.

4) A similar issue occurs in Years > <decade>:
a) DOWN has no effect because nothing is initially in focus (same as issue 3)
b) Click an album to get it in focus and then press DOWN --> view moves down but nothing is in focus and the view just keeps refreshing
TagsNo tags attached.

Verified 2405 issues based on video and description.

Also tested for regressions when navigating items with keyboard,

Left resolved till second verification is confirmed due the complexity of test cases.
