Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

Non-standard: This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The -moz-user-focus CSS property is used to indicate whether an element can have the focus.

By setting its value to ignore, you can disable focusing the element, which means that the user will not be able to activate the element, and the element will be skipped in the tab sequence. The default is none, which disables focussing on the element and removes focus on other elements if there is an attempt to select the element.
