What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

On the online game mode window (or lobby) when all the users are connecting to the game, you set lag input, save game, assign controls and etc, if you want navigate only using the keyboard, if the cursor falls in to the user's table, you can't scape from it only using the keyboard.
With the arrows you navigate throug the columns an rows and that is OK, but if the cursor is at the last cell on the table, if you press tab, instead of go to the next control on the UI like the start button, assign controls button, chat, etc, the cursor returns to the first cell of the table.
If you use shift+tab at the first cell, the cursor moves to the last cell.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Start a network game.
Select direct mode, host a game and open the lobby window.
Try to move in to all controls of the window using tab key. You can't scape from the user's table, independetly if has 1 2 , or more joined players.

If your issue is a graphical issue, please attach screenshots and record a three frame fifolog of the issue if possible. Screenshots showing what it is supposed to look like from either console or older builds of Dolphin will help too. For more information on how to use the fifoplayer, please check here:

Can't give any graphical record yet.
I'll try to capture this behavior in a small video.

What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)

I know that this bug could sounds silly, but is a real problem for users that can't use mouse, or don't use it frequently like the blind users.
Dolphin is a very accessible emulator that works very fine with the screen readers software, with both UI systems; but with the qt UI, we have this small problem when we want to play online.

If you create a new match, your player joins and if you try to find the start button but miss the tab keypresses and fall in to the user's table, you'll be forced to simply cloce the window, and start again with the process to try tstart the game

Thanks so far!
