Here goes an *ugly* alternative:

 1. Install a user script message handler with

 2. Add an injected JS script with

 3. In your injected JS script, handle the “focusout” event on the document.
    Determine which HTML element is the last one that can receive focus on
	the page (tricky for pages which load content when scrolling). If that
	last element loses focus, send an user script message.

 4. In the handler for the user script message, use GTK+ functions to focus
    the next widget i.e. gtk_widget_child_focus()

Certainly clunky, and I am not 100% sure whether it would work decently, but
at least the idea might be a starting point for you to take over from here.
