Bug 97994 Tab into body in Compose is inefficient - FIXED in ZCS 8.6 Patch 2 -

Tab into body in Compose is inefficient

When composing a new message, using the tab key should get one into the body text area fairly quickly.

What I'm seeing currently is that it takes something like 34 keyboard tabs to get to the body text area in HTML Compose, and it seems to never go there in ASCII/Text Compose. It seems to select many other fields/buttons first.

Bug 97797 Can't initiate Remote Wipe of device through AdminUI or Web Client.

If try to block some Applications in 8.6 in the Mobile Activesync Policy, looks like doesn't work, so I've tried to Wipe my devices and nothing happens: 1.- iPad Mini 2.- Android 4.4 in a VM environment 3.- iPhone 5

But when you click in the Wipe the Device, under Admin Console or in the user Web Client.

Bug 97304 Upgrading from 8.5.1 to 8.6 doesn't check the local proxy variables and it fails the upgrade.
