No, it is not a bug. It is called keyboard focus for those who use the keyboard to navigate. Shockingly not everyone can use a mouse.

The Desktop does not qualify is what you are saying?
So using arrow keys when the desktop is selected is not keyboard focus?

for firefox:
go in about: config (typing in the address bar), right click and create the key value digital browser.display.focus_ring_width 0. and restart Firefox.
