I have a tab set that when I select a tab, a blue box surrounds the tab until I click elsewhere on the page.  I cannot find what css is controlling this behavior.  Any suggestions?

This sounds like it is browser specific instead of skuid. Which browser are you using where you see this?

After checking theme settings I could not find a way to remove these borders either. Stephen definitely has a point there as other themes have the exact same border. I think this might be something from the browser (if not even the operating system). When I select something on my desktop, the same border gets shown. I have tested this on chrome and Firefox, Mac and Windows operating systems.

Hi Bill, 

I have a solution!
It is really quite simple, you can stop the "focus" on the css from rendering in the browser.

Dump this into your css: 

*:focus { outline: none; }

Problem solved!
