Mine goes to "advanced search," as a link.

I was working via JAWS Tandem with a client running JAWS 10 on an XP
machine.  Here's his problem and I wonder if anyone else has seen this
and if so, what if anything you did to fix it.

On certain websites such as google, when you tab over to the Google
Search button or I'm Feeling Lucky Button, and then try tabbing past one
of these buttons to the next object on the page, you can't seem to tab
to the next thing.  For example, if I'm on the I'm Feeling Lucky button
and try tabbing to the next thing which should be "Advanced Search," I
still hear "I'm Feeling Lucky button."  This appears to be a problem in
JAWS 10 on an XP machine, my JAWS 10 on Vista doesn't give me this
problem and we did not see it in JAWS 9.

Again, has anyone seen this behavior and if so, were you able to fix it?
