Dialog-level tabs, as found in many of Apple's system preference windows, do not have any direct keynav AFAIK. You just have to Tab through the dialog until the tab control gets focus, then use the arrow keys+Space to switch to a different tab.
Not sure what you mean about "dialog-level tab". Do you mean their
notebook-style preference dialogs with the different pages?
In Mail on 10.6, I can tab between any of the pages/tabs in the
preferences window, Accounts, RSS, etc. and the "tab" receives a blue
highlight. The arrowkeys actually don't do anything. I have to tab to
select a "page", then press Space.
However, in Thunderbird, tab does not work on the notebook-page-tab
thing. I have to Tab to that control, and then use the arrow-keys
(which don't provide any blue highlight feedback, but I can blame that
on the imperfect xulrunner GUI I think).
