I'm working a lot with keyboard; when on the filmstrip, after deleting a file, the [Del] button doesn't work anymore - the filmstrip loses focus.
To reproduce the problem:
1. Go to develop module.
2. Click on a file or navigate to a file with [←] [→].
3. Hit the [Del] button. Now either remove, delete (Left-arrow + Enter) the file or simply Cancel the dialog box (Esc)
4. Bug: after this the filmstrip doesn't responds anymore to arrow keys (navigation) or to another [Del]. I have to click on the filmstrip to focus it again. (Now deleting, removing files works only with mouse in the develop module)
(LR 7.5)

I just tested on Mac 10.13.6 and it is woking fine for me.  After deleting or escaping, the Filmstrip still has focus. What is your OS?

Windows 10, x64. The bug is present in LR 8 also. Many people aren't able to reproduce the bug, so I think LR has a conflict with other installed software
