Cannot focus on menu item with keyboard

Description

Location: 01 Any page in Courseware e.g. https://courses.edx.org/dashboard

Severity: 8

Description: The Sign Out menu item, in the user dropdown, is not keyboard accessible. When navigating with the arrows, the menu items Dashboard, Profile and Account all receive keyboard focus but the focus does not go to the last element in the menu.
Most people with disabilities rely on the keyboard as the sole method of input. These users will not be able to sign out from the application.

Pattern: User Dropdown - Accessibility Issues

Auditor Note: Developers must allow keyboard focus to all actionable elements. Ensure that the Sign out menu item gains focus when navigating with the arrow keys or tab key just like the other menu items.

Internal Note: This is a general bug that has an accessibility impact, but affects all users who do not use a mouse.
